“It has been an honor to serve the residents of North Snohomish County on the County Council for the last four years”, Nehring said. “During my first term, I have prioritized balanced budgets with no tax increases, supporting public safety, and growing jobs in Snohomish County. I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving the citizens of District 1 for the next four years.”
