Letter: City Council election ‘very dull’ without me

 

August 23, 2017



Dear Mukilteo residents,

Thank you so much for supporting me in my previous City Council elections.

Every year, elections come and go, people come and go, but our values should remain the same. Our job as Mukilteo residents is to pick qualified candidates who care for our city, without looking at their ethnicity, national origin, skin color, race, religion or sex. We need to look at their work in the community and their qualifications.

I always participate in elections to demonstrate that I am a corporate citizen. To me, winning or losing does not matter; I always work hard for our beautiful city. My voting record is so solid over the past 10 elections – 8 out of 10. Most of the time I attend council meetings, and community events.

I have done every possible thing to make sure our city is strong and safe. Some people in Mukilteo didn’t endorse me because I opposed increasing sales taxes and property taxes.

Some residents have misunderstood me when I favor welcoming undocumented immigrants into our city. I feel like we are all human beings with the right to live wherever we want as long as we follow the law of the land.

I have applied more than 12 times to different commission positions in the city of Mukilteo, and I was rejected every single time. Do I get distressed? Not at all, because I feel I am very intelligent, and I’m not going anywhere. I am living in Mukilteo, and possibly I’ll apply again.

By the way, a lot of people are telling me that without me running, the election looks very dull.

Riaz Khan Mukilteo
