Letter: Zieve helped me, a Muslim woman, after divorce

Sep 20, 2017

Like many women after an acrimonious divorce, I was left in both financial ruin and emotional distress. The divorce resulted in me having to close my business, and left me alone with two small children to support.

During this time of need, a mutual friend introduced me to the Zieve family. Initially, I was hesitant to approach this family because I come from a highly recognized Muslim family.

It turned out that the Zieve family was not judgmental, and were the most helpful and supportive people toward me and my two children. Peter turned what was a horrific situation into hope for my children’s needs.

I am truly grateful to the Zieve family, and especially Peter, for taking time to talk to me about my hardships and helping me tremendously with his words of wisdom. Peter is a controversial figure, but he is a man of heart and one of the few people who doesn’t emphasize my religious background.

His actions were priceless during my family’s time of need, and I know his vision to make Mukilteo a better place for families is the right direction for our community.

My name is Kiran Quadeer, a strong and highly distinguished Muslim Mukilteo resident. I am requesting my fellow Mukilteo residents to elect Peter Zieve to Mukilteo Council Position 2.

Thanks for sharing your story. Peter Zeive has my vote. I was impressed, he came about knocking door to door last Saturday. Seems to me that Champion is another Boeing-ite, looking out for the best interest of Boeing, vs our residential community.  Seems like he and other council members are attempting to be greedy, tryng to devise a way to tax on AIRBNB and Vacasa type rentals of private homeowners.  They already pay property taxes.  I have also heard from reliable sources, that there is a conflict of interest and all too cozy relationship between Champion and the mayor.  I would also like to see more resources for our young children and families, like a community center for the children.  Children are our future.

You do realize that Peter Zieve's company is a major supplier for Boeing and wouldn't exist without them?He has a much greater reason to prioritize Boeing's needs over Mukilteo

The mayor's husband works for Zieve and they've interacted socially on numerous occasions. Seems pretty cozy to me.
