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 SW WA, Community Military’s Appreciation Committee (CMAC), 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.

    Great letter! I was at a recent forum where La Center city council candidates spoke to issues the city faces and what their visions are. Myrna Leija spoke with knowledge as she has lived and been an active community member since 2018. She lived in Battle Ground for decades before that. In contrast, the young lady running against her said she moved to La Center a year ago with a lot of California resume points. That may not be what residents are wanting.
    I live in the rural area between La Center and Battle Ground and, therefore, cannot vote in this city race. If I could, I would be voting for Myrna due to her relevant experience and sincere love for people, no question.
