For the last four years there has been a war waged to pave over the Sammamish Farm Valley. The valley is the gateway to our Wine & Tourist Industry. This war has been funded and supported by the DeYoung Family, Windermere Real Estate and four city councilmembers. Bauman, Aspen, Hageman and Rubstello.
Despite efforts by King County to mitigate this situation they have not made a definitive authoritative decision to stop the Sammamish Valley annexation and development. Bauman, Aspen, Hageman and Rubstello have sent plans for annexation of the valley back to the Planning Commission for review.
Mayor Bernie Talmas has headed the fight to preserve our valley and the tourism it brings to Woodinville while keeping development growing in the downtown core. Mr. Talmas is running for re-election this fall and is the only seat challenged. An unknown challenger supported by the DeYoung Family, Windermere Real Estate and these four councilmembers.
It’s time the entire Woodinville Community wakes up to the threat to our community by a few profiteering individuals.
