Fourteen years ago, I had the privilege to support Ray Stephanson as he ran for Mayor of Everett. He brought leadership and stability to our city. With his direction, a community was created that has provided for a healthy family and business climate, which has given the citizens of Everett an elevated quality of life.
We are now faced with the opportunity to elect an individual that will build upon his legacy. Mayor Stephanson encouraged Cassie Franklin to run for Mayor. I fully support his thoughtful endorsement of Cassie Franklin and would like to share my experience working with her.
