Congratulations to Councilman Stephen Langer for deciding to run again for the Olympia City Council position. His decision to accept this challenge is very admirable. We need dedicated people like him on the council.
In May 2010 he was first appointed to the City Council position and he did not wait long to show what he could do while on the council. As a member of the Legion Way Planning Team, he spearheaded the Legion Way tree saving to replace the trees only when necessary with oaks to keep that wonderful corridor beautiful. He also helped preserve the use of artesian water at the one remaining public well in downtown Olympia.
His need to keep the downtown area safe, have a police presence in the city known, help the homelessness problem that the city faces and provide a clean environment with good water quality is important to us all.
His understanding of the importance of water quality and environment by not using many chemicals is extremely important to me as I am chemically sensitive. He matches our way of thinking. For the reasons outlined above we are endorsing him for Olympia City Councilman and we hope that you will review his accomplishments and see for yourself that he definitely needs to be a voice on our council.
