Letter to the Editor: Bangasser works hard and is a generous man
September 14, 2010 · 12:47 PM
Thank you for your article on Tom Bangasser. Tom may be hard to understand at times but I know he cares about our community. I don’t always agree with him, and sometimes I wish he would use a different approach in his dealings with community organizations. But it seems that there is room for improvement in communication from all sides.
I would like to point out that he has contributed greatly to our community, especially through Vashon College. It was my privilege to be in the first Vashon 101 class and act as a coordinator in a subsequent class. In everything I observed while in that capacity, Tom was hard-working, generous and gracious.
Vashon needs all its volunteers. Personal and public attacks are destructive to the open democratic process we value. It is my hope that we can find a way to work together for the good of our community.
