Roz Gorc will be an asset to Bothell city politics | Letter

Roz Gorc will be an amazing representative for all citizens on Bothell City Council. Citizens proudly support Roz who have heard her clear, independent message; understand her relentless commitment to public safety; and most importantly are not caught up in the empty rhetoric spewed by negative homeowners’ association members.

Roz Gorc will be an amazing representative for all citizens on Bothell City Council. Citizens proudly support Roz who have heard her clear, independent message; understand her relentless commitment to public safety; and most importantly are not caught up in the empty rhetoric spewed by negative homeowners’ association members. Roz is an upstanding citizen, who is gracious, full of integrity, and diplomatic.

I am responding to the most recent letter, calling me and the countless others who support her a sucker. Dennis Skofstad’s rant against Roz Gorc is dishonest and unfair. Mr. Skofstad misrepresents Ms. Gorc’s defense of the rule of law and due process as something to be feared.

In fact, Mr. Skofstad has a hidden agenda that he conveniently omits from his vitriolic letters. He lives directly across from the Back Nine of the Wayne Golf Course that he wants taxpayers in Bothell to spend millions to buy. Mr. Skofstad repeatedly and falsely accused others of conflict of interest while never disclosing his own financial interest in seeing his golf course view preserved at taxpayer expense.

Skofstad is throwing stones from a glass house of financial self-interest and hypocrisy. Before anyone takes him seriously, remember his record of falsely accusing others and wanting to take your tax dollars to pay for his back yard view.

I’m pleased to support a new, unifying voice on City Council by voting for Roz Gorc, and I urge you to do so as well.

Elisa Anderson, Bothell
