I am writing to express my support for Steve Bergquist's campaign for the 11th district's state representative. Steve's campaign needs no more acclaim with the huge turnout of support he’s received but I want to explain why my former high school teacher's bid for office has me so excited.
Beyond his deep roots in the Renton community, his dedication to education, and his economic knowledge as a small business owner, the thing that most makes him a qualified candidate to me is his passion for the people he serves. With such hard economic times we need a representative that understands the common citizen’s issues and can make decisions that benefit the future of our district. Steve was a great teacher and I have no doubt he will make a great representative. He will make time to listen to the issues, persist in getting the 11th a strong voice in Olympia, and act with commitment and honesty.
Please consider voting for the man behind the success of many of his students.
—Dalia Amin, Renton
