Statement:

I'm running for Sammamish City Council because I want to protect what makes Sammamish special: our trees, parks, and natural beauty. I remember when my kids walked through woods to get to school. In the 29 years I’ve lived and volunteered in our town, Sammamish has experienced significant changes.

 

I will fight to ensure our future is well-planned and sustainable. Using my regional partnering experience, I will make data-driven assessments to champion transit, safe roads, and neighborhoods. As a former tech CEO with more than twenty years of senior management experience, I know how to manage multimillion-dollar budgets with transparency, and how to collaborate to find solutions. I look forward to bringing those values to City Council.

 

I will be a tireless advocate for our community’s best interests, and I ask for your vote. Endorsed by: Washington Conservation Voters; NWPC; King County Democrats; 45th, 41st, 5th LD Democrats; and more

Statement:

The balance between development, infrastructure and environmental protection in Sammamish needs to be restored. I’m running for Sammamish City Council for three reasons.

 

Neighborhood Character: We must have a vision for our diverse city that retains the natural beauty of a bedroom community. I will work to change city code and improve design standards. Environment: As a forest firefighter I fought to save the forest. I will fight to preserve, protect, and restore the natural environment in Sammamish. Transportation and infrastructure: I will only support development that provides adequate infrastructure, transportation and public safety. 

 

If we accept maximum density, we will lose the beauty, safety and character of our community. I will use the tools in the Growth Management Act as intended to control growth. My wife, Debbie, served Bothell as a neighborhood advocate, Councilmember and Mayor, and I bring the same bold leadership to Sammamish. Vote for Kent Treen.
