Everett Council, Dist. 1: City needs Roberts’ experience

We have known Paul Roberts as a neighbor and friend in Everett’s District 1 for 30 years. He is a man with intelligence and integrity.

We appreciate Paul’s accomplishments and experience as an Everett City Council member since 2005. In the next term, Everett will have a new city government structure with districts and at least three new council members. Our City Council will, therefore, need experienced leadership more than ever.

We recognize how Paul has leveraged his regional responsibilities on the Sound Transit Board of Directors, the Association of Washington Cities board, and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency to advocate on behalf of Everett.

We applaud Paul’s leadership and insight by making climate change a priority in his campaign.

Paul Roberts is getting our vote for Everett City Council in District 1. We encourage the rest of our neighbors to join us and re-elect Paul Roberts.

Clay and Hap Wertheimer
