Experienced Beyond Years

On any issue or project, Todd Best will address it with a can do attitude. He will not placate you just to gain favor with you. His belief that Bremerton can do better is tireless and addictive. City projects will get solid attention. Voters’ tax dollars will be spent wisely and public concerns will be addressed during the decision process.

An example of Mayor Patty Lent’s careless monitoring of tax dollars is there for all to see. When entering Bremerton the center divide had beautiful landscaping. It now is overrun with weeds and grasses. Also in front of Olympic College the very same outcome. Thousands of dollars spent to beautify only to have no plan or monies set aside for maintenance of these taxpayer funded projects. So much for business savvy.

All of the Mayor Lent signs now up and down the East Bremerton Wheaton Way corridor ironically sit in front of many empty buildings. Some that were empty when she first became mayor. Other empty buildings have been added to this growing disappointment. None of this translates into success.

Remember, Mayor Lent had one term as a county commissioner. Voted out for a second term. As mayor for a second term in Bremerton, the same old tired politics and slogan about moving Bremerton forward attached to a disappointing outcome and careless spending of taxpayer monies.

Candidate Todd Best for mayor will make you proud of your vote. Vote Todd Best for your next mayor.
