Mill Creek council, Pos. 2: Vignal has leadership credential

Stephanie Vignal eats, sleeps and breathes the Mill Creek City Council on which she serves as mayor pro tem.

I frequently see her on my dog-walking routes, either out for her morning jog or coming back from the bus stop after school with her daughter. She never hesitates to stop and talk about the City Council, her concern over current issues and her desire to make things better.

Stephanie recently received the certificate of Municipal Leadership from the Association of Washington Cities, resulting from her attendance at 30 hours of classwork. This award and the time sacrifice it takes exemplifies Stephanie’s commitment to her role on the City Council and to serving the citizens of our city. Her presence on the council will help our city to continue to be viewed as a desirable place to live, work and raise our children.

Stephanie Vignal deserves to keep her place on the Council. I urge everyone to vote for her.
