Retain Will Foster on Monte Planning Commission

Dear Editor;

I challenge the mayor to find anyone in this community with more profession al experience and credentials than Will Foster to be a VOLUNTEER on the planning commission. I know that the mayor has been seeking other people to fill this position when Will has already submitted is letter of intent to continue to serve the City of Montesano.

It is a shame that the mayor treats dedicated, hardworking, volunteers in our community with this type of disrespect. Will Foster has put in hundreds of volunteer hours working on a project that is slated to be nominated for a national competition and sought after by other small communities.

This long-term plan was developed to insure the integrity and quaintness of our wonderful community continues into the future. Without his leadership and dedication, this great, one-page standard to protect our downtown core would not have been so professionally done. Please show your support of his renomination. What was a labor of love by five community members seems to now be a thankless endeavor. As a downtown business person, who has chosen to put my love and financial trust in this community, I ask the mayor and Montesano City Council to stop this negative, undermining behavior that is tearing our community apart.
