My husband, former county councilmember and Snohomish County Treasurer Kirke Sievers was a lifelong community servant who ran for office as a Democrat. Kirke had forward thinking and though a ‘D’ he was open to new ideas, opinions and solutions to problems. He generally did not endorse other candidates; that wasn’t his practice, but when he did, he did with confidence. One of the few Republicans he did endorse was Sam Low. Low first became acquainted with the Sievers family when he was in high school and he was a classmate to our oldest daughter, Jocelyn. He quickly became a fast friend to all. As Sam became active in politics, Kirke knew that Sam would always do the right thing for the residents of Snohomish County, regardless of party affiliation. Sam and Kirke often spoke of politics and how being a part of the community was important.
Sam is a dedicated community member and an all-around good human being. After my husband’s passing, Sam was there every step of the way. Sam was a significant help in having the memorial done at the courthouse for Kirke. I even received a phone call from Sam on the first anniversary of my husband’s passing; he called to check in and reminisce about Kirke. This is a great example of the character that Sam Low has. Sam not only cares about people, he cares about Snohomish County, regardless of their political beliefs. Sam Low is a phenomenal public servant, who I fully endorse.
