Everett council needs Rourke’s intelligence, civic-mindedness

Tyler Rourke is running for the Everett City Council, Position 4. This young man from central Everett is as intelligent as he is tall. And he is very tall. He is a project engineer for a company that provides robots to build airplanes. His gaze, however, is not fixed only on a work computer.

He is civic minded and currently serves as chairman of the Everett Transportation Advisory Committee. He cares about Everett. He has lived here with his wife for twelve years and is devoted to keeping the community strong for the future of his two young sons.

I know Tyler Rourke and I appreciate that his combination of smarts, leadership, caring, and youth is what we need to help guide Everett to a better future. When my ballot arrives, I am voting for him.
