Everett City Council: LaFountaine will fight for city

We moved to Everett from Kirkland over 40 years ago. Everett has been good for our family. I want it to remain the prosperous, clean and safe city it has been for our children, for our grandchildren.

For that reason, I am writing in support of Marian LaFountaine for Everett City Council, Position 4. I have known Marian for 20 years and have always found her to be serious minded and consistent in holding to her values. Maintaining personal integrity is a given for Marian.

Marian and her family have been proud to call Everett home for many years. It is in Everett where they have built a profitable business. It is in our community where they have supported the Boys & Girls Club and volunteered with team sports and sponsorships.

Marian is tenacious about doing the right thing and supporting those in need. When her husband was seriously burned earlier this year she fought for his life alongside the caregivers at Harborview Hospital, but she did not stop there. She built relationships with other families of burn victims and helped them. Marian is a hands-on, let’s-get-it-done type of person.

Marian will fight to keep Everett safe for our families. She will work to help those in the most dire straits become healthy productive members of our society. Marian supports safe neighborhoods and a clean city.

If it is important to your family that Everett remain a safe, clean and family-friendly city, please cast your ballot for Marian LaFountaine.
