Bellevue appears unresponsive


It has taken the best part of a year for the leadership in Bellevue City Hall to effectively not appoint a new city manager. It is the latest example of their inability to appoint senior management from outside of the city of Bellevue.

Regardless of the merits of the candidates, the decision leaves me with little confidence in our city – we appear unresponsive, conservative and unwilling to make improvements for fear of breaking up the "Old Boys Club."

I would like to see Mr. Miyake and his pals become more positive in the next year, making and sticking to aggressive deadlines, and drawing a line under some of the ongoing projects that continually reappear on the pages of this paper. Only then will our government be able to keep up with the speed the Eastside is moving at today.

Lyndon Heywood, Bellevue
