I’ve lived in the Cavalero Hill area most of my life. I’ve watched as Lake Stevens has expanded from a little town on the northeast side of the lake to the new subdivisions on the hillsides above the trestle. I’m supporting Kristin Kelly for Snohomish County Council District 5 and I’d like these new residents, along with others in the district to know why.
Back in the 90s, Kristin co-owned Turners Grocery. When it became clear that the county was going to allow a big box store and strip malls at the top of Cavalero Hill, Kristin worked to inform and organize the neighbors and broader community. With Kristin’s leadership, commitment to our quality of life, and knowing this was the wrong place for commercial development of that size, the 33 acres is now a county park. Currently it’s an off-leash dog park, but will include much more in the future. This park would not be there if not for Kristin Kelly.
Kristin did not stop with Cavalero Hill, she has continued to advocate for quality-of-life issues throughout Snohomish County. She has the experience, passion and desire to do other great things for our district and for the entire county. She’s a proven leader who not only talks the talk but actually walks the walk. Her campaign is not paid for by big developers as is her opponent, but by people like me who know her and know all the successes she has had.
I hope you’ll join me in voting for Kristin Kelly on Nov. 7.
