Lake Stevens Council, Pos. 6: Wadhams supports police, safety

Lake Stevens’ small-town politics has shifted into the big league; the nasty fear-mongering and negative campaigning that make so many people “hate politics.”

I support Jessica Wadhams for Lake Stevens City Council, Position 6 because she is simply the best person for the job. Jessica is a born leader and has been in leadership roles for most of her adult life. Several years ago, she left her career to begin a family. While raising her children, she started a local community group with a focus on equity. She also helps at a local food insecurity program, she donates blood on a regular basis, and she is supportive of unions. She is hard-working and honest and committed to government transparency, public safety, sustainable growth, and supporting small businesses.

Over the past three weeks, I have received multiple reports from voters who have been contacted by a couple of her opponent’s supporters participating in fear-mongering behavior. They claim that Jessica is some radical who wants to defund the police. I want everyone to know that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Jessica actively supports our city’s Police Department and has met with them on multiple occasions. This is our city and Jessica wants to make sure our voices are heard; while building more sidewalks. Please vote for Jessica Wadhams by Nov. 2.
