Everett Council, Dist. 4: Vogeli a great community leader

As an immigrant and single mom, I am a proud supporter of Liz Vogeli’s re-election to the Everett City Council. I knew Liz as a community supporter and organizer long before she was elected to city council in 2018. Her dedication has been clear to me through her work and presence in the community. Liz has been to countless listening sessions and events to hear directly from community members to connect and to hear concerns. She seeks to build relationships and collaborations. If you participate in the monthly March in Solidarity with Immigrants and Refugees in Everett, you will see Liz as a long-time organizer and supporter of this event. She is also an active City Council representative to the Everett Faith-In-Action Network and has participated in the City of Everett Diversity Advisory board meetings.

She is also a great mom to her children and a neighbor I can count on! She is one of a handful of courageous, brilliant, and empathetic community leaders I know. She is one of the reasons I am so glad to call south Everett home.

We need Liz to be re-elected to city council. She genuinely cares about meeting the needs of the most vulnerable and creating opportunities for all Everett community members to grow and thrive. She has been a consistent community leader long before she was elected and is truly a fighter for the people.
