Peterson says he will run to retain Edmonds City Council seat
Edmonds City Councilmember Strom Peterson on Friday announced his plan to run for a second term in November.
Peterson also shared his list of endorsements so far, including International Association of Firefighters Edmonds Local 1828, current Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling and former Mayor Gary Haakenson, State Rep. Marko Liias, Snohomish County Council President Stephanie Wright and former Edmonds City Councilmember Deanna Dawson.
Peterson is the owner of the Cheesemonger’s Table in downtown Edmonds.
In his campaign announcement, Peterson acknowledged the city’s difficult economic challenges. “Edmonds is facing tight budgets for years to come, but we are all committed to working together to promote Edmonds as a great place to live, visit and do business,” Peterson said.
Peterson is the first of three Edmonds City Councilmembers with expiring terms to announce election plans. The other two are first-term Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas and Kristiana Johnson, who was appointed last year to fill a seat vacated by the resignation of Councilmember Michael Plunkett.
Peterson will hold a campaign kick-off event in March. For more information, email email@example.com.
