Thank you, Councilmember Kevin Wallace | Letter

After serving eight years, with his decision to not seek re-election, Councilmember Kevin Wallace’s tenure will be wrapping up with the November election.

Having served on the Planning Commission for the last four years, I have had the opportunity to learn from, and to work with Councilmember Wallace.

Kevin is a rare politician, if I may use that word to describe him. He is incredibly smart, he listens, he cares, he works very hard, he has an aspirational vision for Bellevue and most of all, he is a problem solver who is not afraid to challenge to the status quo. It is with respect, and with gratitude that I take this opportunity to acknowledge Wallace for his service.
