Paul Anderson, a retired carpenter and long-time Edmonds resident, announced he is running for Edmonds City Council Position 6, the seat currently held by Steve Bernheim.
Noting that Edmonds has had its share of recent civic debate over a wide range of issues, Anderson said that he believes the Council can work together to find common ground.
“I’ve seen a lot of change in Edmonds since graduating from Meadowdale High School in 1973,” Anderson said. “Our city must continue to grow its economic base while preserving the unique flavor that makes Edmonds such a wonderful place to live.”
Anderson said he is already receiving support from civic leaders, and he promises to release an early endorsement list “in coming weeks.”
