County auditor: Fell best suited for reelection to post

Garth Fell is the best candidate to continue to serve the Snohomish County Community as county auditor.

Fell works tirelessly as auditor serving the citizens. His impeccable personal integrity and extensive professional experience continue to make him the candidate best qualified for this key public service position.

He brings 24-plus years of election experience, ensuring and protecting the integrity of our local and state elections. Your vote is important and every vote matters. Fell embraces these core values working conscientiously to protect the transparency of the election process, delivering accurate and truthful election results.

As a peer in the auditor’s office working together for over 10 years, I can attest to Fell’s dedication, honesty and relentless hard work. It was my pleasure to work with him as he served county residents as our elections manager and recording manager. In addition to managing county and statewide elections, the office also serves as county recorder for all real estate transactions in the county. The Auditor’s Office issues marriage licenses, vehicle titles and registrations, pet and kennel licenses, county business licenses, provides animal control services and oversees independent vehicle licensing subagents across the county.

Fell’s comprehensive management background provides the necessary knowledge, experience and skills to effectively manage this truly diverse office with its myriad public services.

Having served three county auditors during my tenure (1984-2017), I have the greatest personal and professional respect for Fell. He has strong family values, is thoughtful, genuine and truthful. He leads with vision and is best qualified to continue to serve as auditor.
