Dear reader, The past few weeks, our online reader poll to determine the ‘Best of Issaquah and Sammamish’ has been humming 24/7. Hourly, our readers have nominated local businesses in myriad categories of the cities’ thriving retail and service sectors. Finally, you’ll find the results in the pages of today’s Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter. Whether the winners, runners up or honorable mentions have a hundred votes, or just three, I am proud of all of them — and am pleased that in a busy, dynamic and competitive marketplace, the staff of these local businesses have given 110 percent to earn the loyalty of Issaquah and Sammamish consumers. These businesses have earned our trust!

Working and living in Issaquah for over thirty years, my family and I have patronized many of them — and have come to know their associates, clerks, managers and owners by name. I hope that, like us, you and your family have dined at, bought clothes from, met friends at, been advised by, bought flowers from, been clipped, coiffed or blinged, been soothed or caffeinated, medically poked or prodded, had your homes improved and your cars serviced by these local business and many others like it. Some of the businesses and people listed on Page 7 may be familiar. Some may be new to you. But each one is unique. I urge you to give all our local businesses a try, and get to know the amazing and diverse services, products and hardworking people that we have right here in our own backyard. - William Shaw Regional Publisher, Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter
