Letter to the Editor: Why I’m voting for Kyoko Matsumoto-Wright


Dear Editor:

I am writing to encourage the voters to Elect Kyoko Matsumoto-Wright as State Representative for District 1 – Position 2.

Kyoko is an exceptional person who has done great things as a Councilmember for the Mountlake Terrace City Council.

I have had the privilege of working closely with Kyoko during the last nine years. We share many common goals- Economic development, creating jobs, making responsible decisions while looking out for the truly needy and homeless.

Kyoko has always been very connected to the people she represents. Kyoko is well respected by other public officials throughout Snohomish County and she dedicates herself to countless hours of public service.

We need a Representative who will listen to us, think creatively and solve problems using common sense. Kyoko Matsumoto Wright is that person. Please vote for Kyoko Matsumoto Wright as our next representative for the 1st Legislative District!

Terry Ryan
Snohomish County Councilman


  1. I would have to disagree, she is the same woman that was quoted saying…
    “I think the citizens of this city really don’t have anything to complain about when you come right down to it because they can always move to another city that has more problems.”
    Mountlake Terrace City Council meeting 1/5/2013

  2. If this is the candidate’s consistent attitude and she frequently makes such statements, that’s concerning. But I think it’s a mistake to dismiss a candidate for something they said over 3 years ago. Everyone at one time or another has misspoken.
