Unofficial mayor candidate: Thanks for supporting VIPP

This letter is to thank all the individuals and businesses that supported my candidacy for unofficial mayor on the VIPP ticket. This support allowed me to finish a respectable second among five highly qualified candidates, even though I was the last to enter the race.

In addition to allowing “ballot jars” at their businesses, special thanks goes to the following businesses that made separate cash contributions; they are listed in no particular order: Minglement, Kronos, Camp Colvos, Eyeland Optical, LS Cedar, Gravy, IGA, Pandora’s Box, Luna Bella’s, Marc Langland DDS, Café Luna, Vashon Pharmacy, Patty’s Place and Vashon Athletic Club.

A special shout-out to the following businesses that also promoted the “voting” by prominently placing the “ballot jars,” thereby resulting in increased results: Vashon Tea Shop, Island Lumber, Rock Island Pizza, Thriftway, Island Queen, Fair Isle Veterinary Clinic and Vashon Theatre.

I also want to include a special mention for an off-island business, Natural Pet Pantry, which made a generous contribution to the “voting.”

Again, thank you all for the support. I look forward to personally thanking you with a wag, a lick and bark when I see you most Saturday mornings in town. Petting always is welcome.
