Former Council candidate/opponent endorses Erin Sitterly:
I am Leonard Luna and as a Pacific Islander/Asian (Filipino/Chinese), I was eliminated in the primaries for SeaTac Council Position #7 this year.
My name and reputation were impugned by incumbent Council member Mia Gregorson (thru rumors, emails, and innuendos) whom we are supposed to trust. This went on for quite a while. I may have made a decision in pointing that out in my voter’s
pamphlet statement what the incumbent has done and is willing to do –raise property taxes, and now have a 6% utility tax. The myriad of statements/falsehoods hurt. They were hard to ignore. I am human and a person who believes in transparency and accountability.
Erin Sitterley has always been positive about SeaTac’s future. She has worked tirelessly for the betterment of our City, knows the inner workings of our local government, and dedicated to our City first and not climbing political ladder. I look to her for a responsive SeaTac leadership (and perhaps should have asked her advice in my campaigning).
Wholeheartedly, I endorse Erin. She represents the best of our City.
I hope that I can serve our City more sometime in the future but it was not my time, yet. It is Erin Sitterley’s time.
If you supported me, please vote and support Erin Sitterley for position #7 in this SeaTac Council election on November 3rd.
Thank you to my family, friends and supporters,
– Leonard Luna
