Bellevue City Council Position No. 4: Kasner vs. Wallace 1. What area of Bellevue should the city focus more on and why? Bellevue’s critical issues can be divided into two categories: city infrastructure and human infrastructure. As a growing urban area, Bellevue requires effective transportation infrastructure. Having a highly functional road and transit network is essential to maintaining an environment where people and businesses want to locate and remain. While council has worked to address this issue with Downtown Livability, increased capacity on I-405 and major roadway capacity projects, more attention should be focused on the safe and efficient movement of traffic throughout the city – including increased bike lanes, safe and accessible sidewalks, and more frequent bus service that meets the needs of all Bellevue residents. I will work to prioritize neighborhood street, sidewalk and bikeway improvements along with light rail that connects Bellevue with the region. 2. What social services do you think are lacking in the city and how would you work to bring them here? The council should be addressing key human services issues facing Bellevue: affordable housing, sensitivity to neighborhoods, building needed infrastructure, prioritizing environmental issues and increasing funding for human service agencies. I would pursue new opportunities, including additional private public partnerships to integrate arts and culture, to build the needed downtown fire sta-

tion and to address the need for affordable housing. One of my highest priorities is ensuring that people who work in Bellevue can find affordable housing close to Steve Kasner their jobs. As a council member, I would support innovative methods to increase housing to meet community needs. I would enhance channels of communication to connect people to the services they need, and I would provide a welcoming and comfortable avenue of access to city and community services for those from diverse cultural backgrounds. 3. How has your involvement with the city prepared you to serve on the city council? I have spent the last 20 years working at both the grassroots and at the appointed and elected levels to preserve and improve our quality of life in Bellevue. I chaired the Bellevue Parks and Community Services board, working with colleagues to preserve the beauty and accessibility of Bellevue’s environment for future generations. I played a key role in development of the South Bellevue Community Center and in the redevelopment of neighborhood infrastructure and shopping centers in Lake Hills. In my role as East Bellevue Community Council chair, I work with others to make land use decisions based on community input. I am a listener and a collaborator with a proven leadership record. I have always been accessible to my constituents and provided forums for all viewpoints to be discussed.

Kevin Wallace 1. What area of Bellevue should the city focus more on and why? Over the next four years I want to build on our council collaboration and use it as a tool not just to benefit Bellevue, but to benefit the region. As Eastside cities continue to recover from the recession, we have an amazing opportunity to work together to enhance our position regionally. Together, we can create economic and social prosperity that will allow us to continue advancing the quality of our communities by investing in public safety, transportation, parks, arts, human services, and economic development. 2. What social services do you think are lacking in the city and how would you work to bring them here? Bellevue and the Eastside as a whole are blessed with many dedicated and well-run nonprofit organizations that provide social services to those in need in our community. As liaison to Bellevue’s Human Services Commission I have considerable first-hand experience with Bellevue’s efforts to address the ever growing social service needs in our city. Bellevue’s staff and commissioners do an amazing job in allocating grant funds to these organizations in a thoughtful, comprehensive manner. But city government cannot provide for all of the social

I encourage everyone to review the city’s Human Services Needs Assessment (available at, to learn more about the nonprofit Kevin Wallace organizations to which the city provides grants, and to provide your time, talent and/or treasure to support one or more of these wonderful organizations. 3. How has your involvement with the city prepared you to serve on the city council? There could be no better preparation for the next four years on the council than serving the city over the last four. I drew on my experience as a long-term resident and civic leader to enable me to guide this city through the most difficult recession it has ever faced and balance the budget without raising tax rates. As a key leader on the light rail negotiating team, I negotiated the most stringent neighborhood protections to which Sound Transit has ever agreed; and a light rail alignment that is grade separated and will save Bellevue tens of millions, but at the same time provide quality light rail to Bellevue. The alignment was unanimously approved by the City Council and Sound Transit and I am proud of the role I played in delivering a solution to this incredibly challenging project.
