Patty Lent was a two-term mayor for the City of Bremerton, Washington. Last November, in a photo-finish election, she passed the torch to a new mayor, Greg Wheeler.
I have known Patty for over fifteen years, long before she entered public office as a city mayor. I wanted to take a moment here to thank her for the eight years she devoted so passionately to the citizens of Bremerton.
I reached out to Mayor Lent last week. During a long catch-up phone call, I welcomed her back to the private sector and invited her to be a Contributor to my new eMagazine.
She was enjoying a well-deserved sabbatical but is enthusiastic about returning, rested and relaxed.
I look forward to Mayor Lent contributing her expertise and wisdom to the Politics section, and maybe even a few other categories of Secrets from the Inside.
I can’t wait to read Patty’s articles — I’ll bet she has a secret or two she can share.
