Education: Masters Degree
Occupation: Pre-arrangement Advisor for Weeks’ Funeral Homes

Four years ago, I began working for Weeks’, and I immediately fell in love with the Enumclaw area and the people who live here. I have lived in big cities and small towns, and this is the best mix of both that I have experienced.


I want to preserve the best qualities of the area while helping to guide its inevitable growth. I yearn for an illicit-drug-free environment and want to protect the vulnerable from sex predators and other criminals. Enumclaw can and should stand for family values and decency. Unfortunately, it appears that law enforcement personnel have been overly hampered by restrictions imposed by outside jurisdictions, so it now falls upon our local legislature to step up and enact provisions that benefit this caring and vibrant community. If you agree, I would be honored to have your vote.

My name is Kerry Flothe. I am running for Enumclaw City Council Position 2. I have lived in Enumclaw with my husband for eight years and we have two sons. What really convinced me that Enumclaw is where I want to raise my family is how the community came together and supported small businessesduring Covid. Enumclaw citizens showed tenacity, resilience, and the true meaning of what it means to be a community through those challenging years. I feel proud to have been a part of it. 


My priorities include the safety of our children, and an invitingcity for our citizens and visitors to enjoy, which includes the maintenance and safety of our community parks, the continued growth and prosperity of our small businesses, and support for law enforcement and all first responders. 


I would be honored to serve for the next four years on our Enumclaw City Council.
