Mill Creek council, Pos. 3: Briles knows residents’ concerns

Over the past few months, I have had the opportunity to observe and evaluate the perspectives of all candidates in Mill Creek’s upcoming November election.

One candidate stands out to me, and that is Benjamin Briles, who is seeking to retain his position on the City Counci, Position 3.

When looking over Benjamin’s past accomplishments, it becomes clearly obvious that he loves the community that he serves, and that his passion for it has, and will continue to, guide our small city to its highest potential. On top of being an aerospace engineer for Boeing and the father of two school-aged children, he has served with countless groups and committees, including the Mill Creek Arts and Beautification Board, the Mill Creek Boulevard Ssub-area project committee, local Kiwanis, and the Snohomish County Planning Commission, and feels it’s his duty to do so. He is endorsed by multiple longstanding leaders in our community who are well respected and share his vision.

Benjamin has heard the community’s concerns about Mill Creek’s traffic, infrastructure, and use of resources, and he will use that information to intelligently plan for the future, not just for the quarter.

I whole-heartedly recommend retaining Benjamin Briles for Mill Creek City Council, Position 3.
