    Cover letter

    My vision, character are clear


    I am a candidate for Spokane Valley City Council, Position 2 and would like your vote and support. Those who are elected should be citizens of competence, strong character, and commitment. I will bring effective leadership to our new city during the critical transition period that lies ahead and work tirelessly to ensure safe neighborhoods, well-maintained roads, and a friendly business environment.

    My dedication to public service and professional experience in the political process are valuable assets I will bring to the new Council. As a veteran of the U.S. Air Force at Fairchild AFB, I learned the importance of service to my nation and community. I opened the Spokane Valley office for Rep. George Nethercutt and help him solve problems for many constituents in eastern Washington every day. Elected officials like Sheriff Mark Sterk, Prosecutor Steve Tucker, and Commissioner Kate McCaslin have given me their vote of confidence by endorsing my campaign. The Spokane Deputy Sheriffs' Association, State Representatives Larry Crouse and Lynn Schindler, and Senator Larry Sheahan are also supporting my efforts. My ability to work closely with our region's leaders will be beneficial to our new city.

    I am enthusiastic about what lies ahead for Spokane Valley, but understand the challenges that are before us. Council members must exhibit positive leadership, promote fiscal responsibility, and be responsive to the needs of our citizens. If you agree with this clear vision, then I ask you to vote Steve Taylor for Spokane Valley City Council on September 17th.

    Thank you.

    Steve Taylor
    Candidate for City Council Position 2
