Mukilteo mayor: Gregerson has accomplished much

Jennifer Gregerson is the sitting mayor of Mukilteo. Although her opponent says “re-elect” on his billboard size campaign signs, we all know that he hasn’t been our mayor for several years. It is a stretch when he asks us to re-elect him.

Gregerson has been our mayor for several years now and has accomplished a great deal in the face of constant nit-picking and borderline truthful statements by her opponent’s supporters.

I think the reasons to re-elect her are best expressed by the National Women’s Political Caucus in their 2021 endorsement of her:

“She has been a strong advocate for public safety, walkable neighborhoods, and education. As mayor, she expanded access to the Mukilteo Waterfront, and spearheaded the development of the Harbour Reach Corridor Project. She is a graduate of Kamiak High and has a masters degree in urban planning from UW. She learned the value of hard work and responsibility growing up in a family-owned business.”

Re-electing her means that she will continue moving us forward. Her family is here, so Mukilteo’s interests are important to her.

To those who would have us believe that Mayor Gregerson’s opponent can almost walk on water, I ask one question: If he was such an outstanding mayor before, why did Mukilteo voters give him the royal boot in the last mayoral contest?

Let’s re-elect our current mayor, Jennifer Gregerson,
