Letter: Khan represents multiculturalism in Mukilteo

Jul 19, 2017

In 2000, Mukilteo’s population was 80.9 percent white. In 2016, that population was 73.3 percent, and the projection for 2021 is 71 percent. Mukilteo mirrors our increasingly multicultural society.

That’s why I am supporting Riaz Khan for City Council. For years, he has promoted understanding and communication between people of different cultures. Mukilteo will be a better community when its diverse residents are all included in discussions and problem solving.

Mr. Khan’s statement in the voters pamphlet shows he also is concerned about significant issues that cross all cultural lines: waterfront development, clean air and green spaces, and mental health. I will gladly cast my vote for him to represent me on the City Council.

Lastly, I would like to thank all candidates for public office in Mukilteo for being willing to serve on behalf of your fellow citizens.
