Duerr gets thing done for city on Bothell City Council

Davina Duerr may be the most hardworking and engaged member who has ever served on Bothell City Council. Before serving on Council, she served over four years with Northshore School Foundation as the chair of Making an impact on Learning and Kids.) For 10 years she served on the Bothell Landmark Preservation Board. As deputy mayor for the last thee years she holds quarterly conversations with Bothell residents at the library to hear neighbors’ concerns and answer questions about city policies, budgets, etc. In addition to holding public meetings, she sends out a summary of the council meetings. Davina exemplifies hard work and engagement and she is smart! Council majority hired a lobbyist to shepherd the priorities through the state legislative budget process. Throughout the legislative session Bothell City Council members made many trips to Olympia focused on their five legislative priorities. Their efforts culminated in all five priorities being supported by the state Legislature.

In return for an investment of $50,000 in consulting services our council led by Davina was successful in securing $6 million from the sate for I-405 enhancements, support in hiring and training police, begin preparation for Bus Rapid Transit, restored the Bothell Bridge and converted two contaminated parcels of land from liabilities to assets for the City.

Davina Duerr deserves your vote!
