LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Glendale decision makes Whidbey living good


Kudos to the Island County Council for the reversal of their decision not to buy the Glendale property.

This decision to allow the purchase to go through is a huge benefit to the folks living on the South End of our beautiful and wonderful island. All the people who have worked hard to get this done deserve a huge thank you from the South End population.

The beach access at Glendale is excellent and the beach itself is a great beach. I know that the Republican Party usually shies away from this type of public spending and I am sure that Jill Johnson will take some flak from her constituents about this decision. But she stated her reasons why she didn’t vote for this in the first place, and since her concerns about the county being on the financial hook for the property costs in the future have been alleviated, she has reversed her decision. This is what ethical people do. So good for her. And this is good for Island County too.

Thanks again to all the people who made this happen. This is one of the main reasons why I love living here. Community involvement and people doing things for other people, even people they don’t know and probably never will.
