I echo former council member Louise Bjornson’s support for Russ Whidbee (TrustRuss)  for the at large position on the Bellingham City Council. I have spent the last 28 years serving on the council and Russ has what it takes to be a good council person. His 40 years in this community gives him the experience to lead from the start. Bellingham faces a lot of tough issues I trust Russ to make the best decision for the city. It is tough sometimes to make a decision that angers a lot of people but if it’s the right decision you have to stand firm and Russ will do that. I served with Louise for 16 years, and I trust her judgement. Louise spent 22 years on the council and I am leaving after 28 years, that is 50 years of serving this city, we see the leadership in Russ we hope you do also. (See website at TrustRuss)
