Isn’t it telling that candidates running for council positions, cite reasons for their quest that sound so much like those people running for Seattle City Council.

How about restoring Kittitas County to the merits of its “Western Heritage?” That is, limited government, market-driven development, and folks actions held to the high standard of laws already on the books.

I, for one, wish to see families moving here assimilate and enhance our way of life, rather than work towards change that reflects the area that they’ve escaped from.
