Nate Nehring deserves election to county council

Snohomish County is one of Washington state’s fastest growing counties and our county is unique in that we have a broad spectrum of communities and scenery.

County Council District 1 encompasses a blend of the entire county. In District 1, we have County Councilman Nate Nehring, appointed to the position in January, who has connected with his constituents while stepping up to the county challenges and listening to our critical concerns.

Nate was a strong voice for moving forward with a solid, workable plan for a county courthouse remodel instead of a costly new building. He does his research and states his positions with clarity, which reflects the depth of his understanding about issues facing our county.

It is exciting to see this intelligent, energetic councilman present himself and his ideas to the community. His professionalism, character and willingness to roll up his sleeves and get involved says a lot about his commitment to be a public servant.

Nate will be running to retain his position in this year’s election cycle which has already begun. Please take an opportunity to meet Nate and I am sure you will agree that with his leadership skills, we are in good hands. We can be confident that he will be on top of issues from land use, homelessness and working with all of us to solve the devastating drug related issues. We need more people like Councilman Nate Nehring representing us in Snohomish County.

Two copies of the Dr. Seuss children's' book “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” are displayed at the Lackawanna County Children's Library collection in Scranton, Pa., Tuesday, March 2, 2021, show changes between editions. An earlier 1964 edition features a character described as "a Chinese boy" with yellow skin and a long ponytail, while a 1984 edition changes the character to "a Chinese man" and removes the skintone and ponytail. Six Dr. Seuss books — including “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo” — will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery, the business that preserves and protects the author's legacy said Tuesday.
