Sadly, it appears the status quo is good enough for the citizens of Kenmore.  I am hopeful that some fiscal reponsibility will  be exercised at the City of Kenmore.  But, I fear that this election will only further inflate egos and we will continue down the road of bad financial decisions and poor management.

Is this a joke?!!  With thousands of empty commercial square feet owned by Kenmore, the city council decided to lease space for a temporary City Hall.  Is this bizarro world?! 

Kenmore City Council should be ashamed of their irresponsible fiscal behaviour with our money.

I just found this site and think it is great.  There has been great analysis, information and updates regarding our city and the upcoming election:


Kenmore needs a change in the City Council. 

It is (past) time for smart fiscal decisions.
