Graffiti

Bremerton police have nabbed

suspects

Residents of Manette and Bremerton,

For the past few weeks we have be hit with a new round of graffiti taggers who have used names such as ‘Stomp’ ‘Hatred’ and ‘Slo’ on our buildings and walls. And you have passed these reports to me and I’ve passed them on to the Bremerton Police.

I am pleased to give the news that on the Graveyard shift 10/21/07, Bremerton police officers arrested four juveniles for graffiti in the Manette area. It looks like at least one of the taggers has been arrested and identified.

Please take this time today to look over your properties and see if you may have been ‘tagged’ with graffiti in recent weeks. If you have, please take a digital photo and contact the desk officer at the Bremerton Police Department at:

Desk Officer

Bremerton Police Department

1025 Burwell St.

Bremerton WA 98337

(360) 473-5220

alternate after hours: (360) 307-5400

Taking the information now will (hopefully) bolster the prosecution’s case and make it easier for your insurance claim if it turns out one of the four was the perpetrator.

Thanks, and enjoy a beautiful day in Bremerton!

Bremerton City Councilman, District 3

Maupin

Best choice for council

Re: Letter from Otto Spieth endorsing Mr Younger as NOT a YES man. Indeed, during Mr. Younger’s tenure 2001-2003 he and the other’s on the board often voted against change in Bremerton while city expenditures exceeded revenue, operating reserves were severely impacted and loans were taken out to cover monthly cash flow.

I am proud to endorse my friend, Will Maupin, who has worked tirelessly and with great passion to promote change for this gem of a city he calls home.

Take a look at all the great progress which has been made during his years on the board. It is a dream many have held for years for this beautiful waterfront city.

Will has served as chair of the fiscal/budget committee and has dramatically cut costs and adopted reasonable finacial goals and policies. He is now council president and has worked to promote teamwork and has made changes to make the council more efficient.

Please vote for progress in Bremerton and keep this hard working, honest person on the board.

There is only one choice for council

We support Will Maupin continuing to be able to do the great job he is doing on the Bremerton City Council. As our councilman, we have watched him perform admirably on projects such as Bremerton’s revitalization, the West Park redevelopment and many others. Will’s decisions are based on what is good for the citizens of Bremerton and he is able to look at the “big picture” in making such decisions. As current council president, his record speaks for itself – just look around the city. We encourage voters in Will’s district to vote to keep him on city council.

Robinson

Worthy of re-election

We are pleased to express our support for Dianne Robinson to be reelected to Bremerton City Council District 6. As committed and concerned citizens from a wide range of areas, we write to offer our support for Mrs. Robinson to continue her effective contributions to our citizenry.

As a result of Dianne’s unceasing effort to represent the voice of the people for her district, many average citizens have benefited from ner personal interaciion.

She does not simply live in the community. She personalty contacts individuals, and demonstrates a genuine understanding of community expressed needs and concerns. She learns from others and builds on what everyday people have to offer. Resulting in completion of community service task, and creating a “we were heard” community feeling that promotes an overall positive sense of attainment.

Rp-riipnt officiates along with Dianne Robinson are the reason for the phenomenal upswing of average citizen contributions in Bremerton, which have resulted in obvious positive changes. Mrs. Robinson’s honesty and strong leadership skills have not gone unnoticed. In our opinion, she has given her life to service our community; particularly priorities like cleaner neighborhoods, improved parks, safe and healthier living for our children and a better understanding of the value of homeownership and affordable housing. We have sought input from those who have experienced positive environmental change, and they attribute Dianne’s efforts to these improvements.

As an African American Women of Achievement, we are also impressed with her ability to influence all ethnicities throughout the wide variety and geographical spread in Bremerton. She has maximized the opportunity within the Faith based community, and close tie in with the Military on to the State of Washington.

Faced with the positive outcome of Mrs. Robinson’s efforts, we cannot stifle her drive! Although, many good nominees will emerge, we are certain her reetection as City Council for District 6 is crucial to the continued improvement for the City, County and State combined.
