Snohomish City Council, Pos. 6: Burke can serve city’s needs

I have known and respected Lea Anne Burke for many years. We’ve worked together on various environment and sustainability related projects, including: creation of a Snohomish Parks Foundation, participating in the former Adopt-a-Park program, helping to draft the city’s Integrated Pest Management strategy, and years of service on the Snohomish Parks Board. She walks the walk when it comes to the environment.

She is also a successful grant writer, planner, and project manager, working for many years for the Tulalip Tribes. Lea Anne is thoughtful yet fearless in sharing her perspective. We desperately need her knowledgeable voice on council as the city continues rapid growth at the expense of our trees and green space. She believes in sustainable living, a resilient environment, and an equitable community.

Please join me in voting for my friend, Lea Anne Burke, in the November general election!

Wildlife officials said Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, that an emergency trap-and-truck operation of Idaho-bound endangered sockeye salmon, due to high water temperatures in the Snake and Salomon rivers, netted enough fish at the Granite Dam in eastern Washington, last month, to sustain an elaborate hatchery program.
