Brian Sullivan to run for re-election for Treasurer of Snohomish County
EVERETT, Wash., April 25, 2023—Brian Sullivan has announced he will run for re-election for County Treasurer. Sullivan has worked on budgets across many levels of government.
“I’ve always worked toward creating a Snohomish County with strong fiscal health and great services that taxpayers can trust. I am grateful for the last four years and will continue to humbly serve the taxpayer, manage the county treasury, and protect the hard-earned tax dollars of its residents,” said Sullivan.
A former mayor, state legislator, and Councilmember before serving as the Treasurer, Sullivan has a range of budgetary experience at all levels of government. He has been a strong advocate on the County Council for a rainy-day fund and played a crucial role in passing a Snohomish County finance reform package, which set aside millions of dollars in reserves for future needs in the case of an emergency.
“I’ve worked on 12 city budgets, 12 county budgets, and three state budgets,” said Sullivan. “I know the ins and outs of financial decision-making; I’m a strong believer in fiscal accountability, balanced budgets, and the need for long-term planning. Each year the County’s Treasury invests millions and collects taxes across the county. I’ll look for opportunities to meet these duties with a greater appreciation of the needs of our community.”
Sullivan continues to create a more transparent Treasurer’s Office with helpful tools and an improved focus on customer service. He aims to create a new online dashboard service that will allow better project tracking and a record of where investments have been made.
“With many in Snohomish County facing challenges from rising living costs, I want to look at ways to build trust and provide needed assistance,” said Sullivan. I will look at programs like incremental payments, partial tax payments, and other reforms that can ease the tax burden on seniors, working families, and other vulnerable groups throughout Snohomish County.”
Sullivan enters the race with the support of County Council-members Chair Jared Mead, Vice Chair Nate Nerhing and Megan Dunn, State Senator Marko Liias, Senator John Lovick, Mukilteo Firefighters Local 3482, IBEW Local 191, Sno-Ise Labor Council, National Democratic County Officials, and Rep. Lillian Ortiz-Self.
