While serving on the Cocoon House Board, I had the opportunity to hire Cassie Franklin as then fund developer, who went on to be the executive director. It was clear that Cassie possessed superior skills, abilities and passionate energy for the position. Under her solid leadership the organization thrived.
Other supporting letters have stated her many qualifying attributes and competencies. I want to share another dimension. Mayors successfully, efficiently and effectively do their job with the support of an excellent team, not only the team located in and around City Hall, but also the many other city mayors, councils, organizations and policy makers (at the county, state and federal levels). Cassie Franklin has already established many of those working relationships necessary to accomplish the many tasks set before her when elected. She is known for being a committed, energetic, inclusive, action-oriented elected who knows what it takes, including relationships and partnerships, to get things done. The city and citizens of Everett will be well served with Cassie Franklin serving as its mayor.
