Arlington Council, Pos. 3: Nelson gets results for residents

My husband and I met Debora Nelson shortly after buying our first home in January of 2020. Deb and her husband were out for one of their many walks around town. Since that time, I’ve been so impressed with her unyielding passion to help improve the community we call home.

We bought a new construction house and there was a significant backlog in Snohomish county for having lots divided with appropriate property taxes applied. We reached out to Deb as neither us nor our builder were making any traction. She immediately connected us with County Council member Nate Nehring and the issue that we had worked on for several months to no avail, was suddenly solved! She’s been a community staple on the Arlington City Council for the past 10 years.

In addition to the property tax problem, she’s also assisted our family with petitions to the county for assistance to tackle the prolific speeding problem on the roads adjacent to our home. I’m truly inspired by her perseverance and dedication to fight for our community to be the best place to call home. We support Debora Nelson for Arlington City Council 100 percent.
