It's official: Enumclaw Mayor Liz Reynolds is seeking re-election this fall.
With endorsements by King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn and 31st District Rep. Chris Hurst (see below), Reynolds shared the following announcement today:
Let me begin by saying thank you to all of the residents of the City of Enumclaw; it has been my pleasure to serve you during my first term as Mayor. The past four years have gone by quickly and I look forward to serving you in another four years.
I am proud to say we were able to preserve the City’s economic health while continuing to provide services to the City’s residents; all this during the toughest financial times seen since the Great Depression.
In order to maintain and preserve these services, it required the establishment of a new operating model for the City; one that provided strong fiscal oversight of expenditures; operation within a budget of reduced financial means; increasing the communication, transparency, and accountability of the city to its residents; reduction of operating costs; implementing efficiencies and finding innovative ways to preserve the services that are crucial to all of us.
Implementing a “financial survival plan” for the City in this “Great Recession”, required a Mayor that listens to differing opinions while maintaining an open mind, it required a Mayor that was willing to develop new partnerships; it required a Mayor who carefully and fairly assessed information to make decisions, decisions that sometimes were tough and at times unpopular.
Fours years ago I said I would face the difficult challenges and implement solutions. I have held true to my word; Enumclaw is positioned to capture great opportunities that will enhance our community today and in the future.
My commitment to each resident of Enumclaw is continue to safeguard its citizens & offer well delivered service to the residents of Enumclaw. I will continue to work with all of you in order to build a stronger more economically stable future for the community and our children.
I would be honored to continue serving this community as your Mayor for the next four years.
Please cast your vote for the re-election of Liz Reynolds as Mayor.
Best wishes always…Mayor Liz Reynolds
