City council

doing a great job

I have been hearing disrespect for some of our city council members. This really tarnishes our city. To my way of thinking we have the most knowledgeable and able council I can remember on a whole.

It is unfortunate that some people let personalities get involved with their judgment of the city council. This is a very bad habit for the citizens of Sunnyside to be doing. If you are going to judge the council, then judge them all for what they have done for Sunnyside. This council is making this the best community in the Valley to live in.

People have moved out of Sunnyside because of the large Hispanic influence in town. What I say to these people is, adios amigo! We do not need you. As these people move away the better our community gets.

We have new businesses moving into the community like we have never seen before. New buildings everywhere.

Now, if this city council had been sitting on their butts doing nothing, we wouldn't be seeing this expansion of growth as we now see. And we haven't seen anything yet. It is just starting.

I praise our city council for the vision they have shown in the last couple of years. I praise our current city council for setting the foundation for additional growth within our community. I praise our council for the tremendous new city manager they hired in selecting Bob Stockwell. I also praise them for hiring his predecessor, Dave Fonfara, who did a lot for Sunnyside.

We have such a good city council at the moment that when a council member quits or is replaced at the polls, the city will keep going forward at a tremendous pace.

The nucleus is in place for Sunnyside to keep achieving economic growth.

Thanks again to all you city council members. Pat yourselves on the back for an overall great job you have been doing!
