    Cover letter

    I will stay focused on needs, concerns
    My name is Janine Eldredge-Underdahl, I was born in Spokane and raised in the California Bay Area. I've been married to my wonderful husband Andy, for three years and have two''furry'' kids.

    I have worked for the Appleway Automotive Group in the Spokane Valley for over 10 years as a Group Customer Retention Manager. What inspires me to pursue a seat on the Spokane Valley City Council is the opportunity to bring a refreshing outlook to our new city.

    I'm an average citizen like the majority of our residence and feel I could best represent the Spokane Valley people. I have been a Valley resident for 14 years and in that time, I have witnessed many changes to our city.

    As the Valley becomes its own entity, I feel it is vital to give these changes concise and clear-cut attention. In Council seat 6, I intend to stay focused on the needs and concerns of our Valley residents, as it is we, that will control these changes, great and small.

    I don't claim to have all the answers but the ability to be objective and open minded. As a contributor to our community, I feel its time to get involved and speak up for my peers who have the same concerns I do. Thank you for your support, Vote Janine Eldredge-Underdahl, a New Voice the Best Choice!
