Joe Duffie brings wisdom to Tukwila City Council | Letter to the editor

I enjoy reading the Tukwila Reporter. The day when I open up my mailbox and see the Tukwila Reporter, is the day that I make the 200-foot walk to my front door in record time. I can't wait to sit in my "relax the back" chair and read what's going on in our fine city. I enjoy reading Chuck Parrish articles, but this last one (the January issue) had me a little concerned. One of the first persons that I met after moving to Tukwila seven years ago was Joe Duffie. Joe has been a fixture in our community for a long time and he is someone who should be a model for all citizens in our community. Now Chuck may think that Joe just sits back and rides the coattails of the other City Councilors; but what Chuck doesn’t see is the wisdom, experience and knowledge of being on the City Council for almost 30 years and how this helps our City Council as a whole. I like the fact that Chuck gives his opinion on the Most Valuable Player and even the Most Improved Player. I felt that Chuck did his article a disservice by putting in the Least Valuable Player. This is what is wrong with our politics of today; we always have to invent a bad guy to make ourselves feel better.
