Letter to the editor: Leija a no-nonsense go-getter


La Center has a chance to elect a dynamo to its City Council. Myrna Leija is a no-nonsense, get-it-done fireball with a heart of gold.

With an education in criminal justice and work with the Vancouver Police Department and as a corrections deputy, she has a strong sense of justice and is a fierce supporter of law enforcement. She wants to see La Center get its own police department again. She’s also a proponent of local businesses and knows that new businesses would bring benefits to the community.

Myrna also gives back to the community volunteering in prison ministry, The Veterans & First Responders Board of Southwest Washington, Community Military’s Appreciation Committee and Bible Study Fellowship Leadership.

Myrna was unanimously appointed to the council in June to fill a vacancy. Voters should jump on this opportunity to elect this go-getter who loves the community and has a heart to serve.
