Did You Get Enough Answers To Influence Your District #4 Vote?
In Yakima City Politics, the even-numbered City Council Districts are up for re-election this November second. District #2 is in Southeast Yakima, District #4 is in the central south business area, District #6 is in the Northwest part of the City.
Today we talked with long-time Yakima resident Janice Deccio who is running for the District #4 seat currently held by councilwoman Dr. Kay Funk who chose not to seek reelection.
Deccio has a degree in Journalism and a Master's degree in healthcare administration. The candidate says she has worked in communications for Catholic Charities for the past few years and she loves the job.
She has been active on a number of boards and agencies in the past and now she feels it's time to try to help the entire city by getting on the council and doing something "positive."
Among the challenges facing the city, Deccio says crime is near the top and the incidents of criminal activity seem to be on the rise. She believes safety, homelessness, and other problems can be addressed by working with a variety of agencies.
