This is in response to the letter to the editor regarding the endorsement by the city council members of Katherine Quade. This citizen would like to say that I do not believe that the endorsement of any particular candidate by members of the city council is in any way appropriate. I feel that it is prudent that members remain neutral in their opinion of this matter. Regardless of the outcome it is important that the environment lends itself to getting the very important work of the city of Poulsbo accomplished without any unnecessary conflict hindering these efforts. It is my hope that this partisan support will not interfere with the future productivity of the counsel.
