It is a pleasure to recommend Mike Riggs for a seat on the City Council of Moses Lake. I have known Mike as a member of the Trails Committee of Moses Lake. He has served as a leader for the existing trail system and as a visionary for future trails. His dedication and hard work has been exemplary. As principal of Knolls Vista Elementary School, he was one of the first to encourage the establishment of safe routes to school and to support walking to school as a healthy activity. When he retired from Knolls Vista, he served as superintendent of the Wilson Creek School District.
Together we have trained for the Bloomsday race in Spokane and assisted with races in Moses Lake for Budu Racing. Mike is well organized and presents new ideas and follows through on all projects. He has obtained state and national grants to build new trails and support activities. I support Mike Riggs wholeheartedly and know he will serve our city with dedication and enthusiasm.
