During the month of October, we are hosting meet and greets with candidates for the Mercer Island City Council. This Sunday we welcome Wendy Weiker.
My family was drawn to Mercer Island because of its natural beauty, close proximity to our off-island jobs, and opportunity to join a community that is proud of both it's heritage and future. We moved here with our 2 small children because we wanted to enjoy the safe neighborhoods, great schools, wonderful parks and beaches, and strong sense of place. Now that one child is in college and the other is graduating from MIHS in June, I am so grateful to the MI village that helped us raise our children. We are all so fortunate to call this island home.
I am running to retain my seat on the Mercer Island City Council because I care about our community. This is a critical time as government leaders decide how we manage our scarce resources while maintaining essential city services and the great quality of life we enjoy on our island. We must also thoughtfully plan for and participate in the growth, transportation, land use, and economic changes that are happening in our city and this region. It would be my privilege to continue to represent you, advocate for our community's interests, and work with our city and regional partners to help shape Mercer Island's future.
