Welcome. I am Dee McComb and running for Bainbridge Island City Council, South Ward. I am looking forward to the next few months. We live in a special place in the Puget Sound. I want to be part of the process of making decisions with the citizens of the South Ward and Bainbridge Island to protect our property rights while considering the future of our waterways.
There are matters which are high on the priority list including the Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) as it is being reviewed by the Department of Ecology (DOE). Ratepayer fairness and growth management are also important. New developments are being constructed, considered or permitted which will impact our traffic and choices of how we utilize the businesses and residences on our island. We need good roads to drive on, bike on and walk beside. We need to recognize that we are part of a larger connectivity with Kitsap County, King County and the State of Washington.
