LYNNWOOD, Wash., August 11, 2023—Over 100 attendees gathered in the backyard of a Lynnwood home on Sunday, August 6, to share food and offer support to George Hurst who is seeking a third term on the Lynnwood City Council. He is running unopposed in the November election.
“I plan on an active campaign,” Hurst said. “I want to emphasize the important issues for the City of Lynnwood. First, public safety is always a central concern for any city council, but public safety should not be limited to hiring more police officers. We also need to make sure we address the substance abuse and mental health crisis in our region. I want an emphasis on programs that address root causes that provide solutions and not services that still leave hurting people on the streets. Second, solving the lack of available housing for all levels of income in Lynnwood must be addressed with careful modifications of our housing zones and codes. And finally, we need to make sure our city is environmentally sustainable. This includes having electric vehicles as a priority for our city fleet, incentivizing the use of solar power and replacing our failing old technology wastewater treatment plant that flows into Puget Sound.”
George was joined by several city council candidates, Nick Coelho and Robert Leutwyler running for positions in Lynnwood, Chris Eck of Edmonds and Annette Ademasu of Shoreline. He commented, “I appreciate not only the support of residents in Lynnwood but also of other like-minded candidates who want to make sure our region is a great place to work and live in.”
George Hurst is endorsed by the Snohomish and Island County Labor Council, the Affordable Housing Council, the Snohomish County Camano Association of Realtors, the Lynnwood Police Guild, the 32nd District Democrats and the Snohomish County Democrats.
Election Day 2023 is Tuesday November 7th. Voter registration online is available until October 30th, you can register in person up to 8pm on election day.
