Villanueva cares for everyone
To be courteous does not mean that you are a coward.
The subject line refers to the humility, humanity and
philosophy of Tomas Villanueva. He is an inspiration to people of Washington,
that dignity has no bounds. As the Democratic candidate for the 15
District, Mr. Villanueva is clearly a man of leadership.
With his beautiful wife they have lived and raised their
fine family almost 50 years in the Yakima Valley. Instead of enjoying a well
earned rest, Mr. Villanueva wishes to help the 15
, Yakima Valley
and the state of Washington with his wit, wisdom and common sense.
This man has worked with his hands in the fields so knows
the hardship of being away from family from dawn to dusk. He is not afraid of a
challenge and knows the honesty of work. His leadership skills are well known
in the Valley, where he has spoken to workers, foremans and owners of just
causes. He is a man of integrity.
Mr. Villanueva knows the challenges of bureaucracy and has
experienced the cutting red tape to get things done. Mr. Villaneuva treasures
the value of workers and of a good wage and working conditions. He is a man of
the people, as he is one of them.
His record is unchallenged in his issues of health care,
full funding of schools, affordable housing. These are issues of the Americans.
You can vote for the other guy or you can be fully
represented by Tomas Villanueva, who cares for everyone, not just the select

Kiwanis Park repairs needed
They need to fix the basketball court at Sunnyside’s Kiwanis
Park. The backboard and rim has been broken for about three months.
They told us they were going to fix it, but never did. On
Aug. 9 they told us that the first priority was to make the grass green and fix
the sprinklers. The grass is already green.
It is a good park and we would always play there, but now no
one goes over there.
Please help us.
