Letter to the editor in August 9th Edition of the Olympian:
ROBIN VAZQUEZ IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR LACEY CITY COUNCIL POSITION #4
I’ve known Robin Vazquez for years and know her as a disciplined, organized but approachable professional woman, mother, partner, and friend, and I will state unequivocally that she is the best possible choice for the job.
She has a heart, but also a spine. She’s tremendously practical and skilled in finding the best solutions for everyone while still pursuing effectiveness and efficiency. And when it needs to get done, you will see Robin Vazquez, sleeves rolled up, getting it done.
Robin is well educated, has a long history of volunteerism and holds many certifications. She has spent years working for the Office of Financial Management in a professional capacity.
She innately demonstrates fiscal responsibility. She’s the breadwinner in her household, has worked on a shoestring budget and fundraising for local nonprofits as well as large public budgets, having negotiated multi-million-dollar labor agreements for the state during challenging fiscal times.
She’ll work hard both because of her sense of responsibility and because it’s who she is. She finished graduate school while working full time in a fast-paced, demanding job while raising two kids. Tackling challenges and working to solve complicated problems is what she does. She will thoughtfully address issues such as homelessness, climate change, housing affordability and economic recovery.
She is tremendously caring while still eminently practical. Robin Vazquez believes in community and wants to create one in Lacey that works for everyone.
