Flynn best for Position 5, Snohomish City Council

I moved to Snohomish 30 years ago to raise my family and educate my children. What a great City! Lovingly restored houses, rivers, a lake, abundant parks, a vibrant downtown and great schools make this a desirable place to live. If you live here you already know that. Taught the importance of civic engagement and an obligation to give back, I found in Snohomish a city of a size where I could make a tangible contribution. To that end I became a member of the Parks Board to advocate for the benefits of open space for a healthy community.

During that time I have met many citizens who are passionate about Snohomish. They willing volunteer on a task force or advisory boards and commissions. And some are willing to put the time and energy into service on City Council.

I see David Flynn as someone who recognizes the value of parks. He sees the important role the arts play in civic life. As a business owner he knows how to problem-solve. And he naturally seeks to reach consensus around divisive issues.

I’m excited see that David Flynn is one of those citizens willing to do the hard work to be an effective member of the Snohomish City Council. Talk to him. He listens. If you do you will find the same drive, enthusiasm, and compassion for Snohomish that I find. I think you will be convinced that David is what Snohomish needs.

Please vote for David Flynn for Position 5.
