List of Candidates for
METROPOLITAN KING COUNTY COUNCIL DISTRICT NO. 01, 4 YR TERM

Carolyn Edmonds

Democrat

    Why would I want to give up representing you in the Legislature to serve you on the County Council? It is true that state policy drives local decisions. But, local government most directly affects peoples’ lives. The decisions facing the County are great:

    •   TAXPAYER ACCOUNTABILITY

        In Olympia I voted against great sounding items because I wanted to hold the line.

    •  LOCATING THE NEW SEWAGE TREATMENT FACILITY

        There must be sufficient opportunity for each of us to participate in the decision making process.

    •  CLEANING UP AND CONSERVING THE WATER

        We must preserve open space and sensitive areas as we manage growth.

    •  FINDING TRANSPORTATION SOLUTIONS

        We have to make progress in finding new transit options. At the least, we can improve the efficiency of what King County controls.

    I’ve spent the last three years as your 32nd District State Representative. In a deadlocked legislature, I wrote and passed strong legislation for education, long-term care and low-income housing. I was named “Legislator of the Year” by Home Care Association, and “ Champion of Quality Care” by the Washington Health Care Association. Now, I’d like to work where we need the most help – the County Council.

Republican

    Ed Sterner is a community advocate in the best sense. He's worked tirelessly to make our neighborhoods the best they can be. As a Lake Forest Park City Council member, Ed has used his Masters degree in government to help make the city work better. Property tax rates are down 10%. Crime is reduced. Programs he champions are helping young people and senior citizens while promoting efficient government. “We need Ed’s vision on the King County Council.” Sam Reed, Secretary of State.

    Ed's roots go deep into our community. He serves on the Northshore/Shoreline Community Network, the King County Juvenile Justice Operational Master Plan Oversight Committee and received the PTA Golden Acorn Award for outstanding volunteer service to youth and community. He’s also served as Scout leader, service club President, soccer coach and volunteer legal counselor.

    Working on the Council, Ed will strive to relieve transportation gridlock, control taxes, increase affordable housing, promote employment and preserve environmentally sensitive lands.

    Please join us in supporting Ed Sterner for King County Council.
