Kudos to Randy Lord for voicing our thoughts | Letter
Editor, The Beacon:
I appreciate Council President Randy Lord for voicing what many of us have been thinking and feeling [“Ethics and politics: you can have both at the same time,” The Beacon, Council Corner, page 4, Aug. 27].
Folks in Mukilteo have the expectation that their elected officials will behave in a manner that reflects the highest ethical standards.
Unethical political behavior is rarely forgotten, particularly on a local level in a small town such as ours. I imagine it lingering like an ever-present shadow, tainting the shadow maker forevermore.
Once credibility and integrity are sullied, subsequent good works can not undo the damage.
Voters! Are you prepared to practice accountability at the polls?
