Paul Anderson announces candidacy for Edmonds City Council

Paul Anderson

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.”

  1. This is going to be a great year for Edmonds. Paul’s announcement should be just the first of many to bring an open a complete discussion of our needs and goals. An idea to make this election season more productive would be that anyone running for council just not select the position yet. You have until June to decide which seat you will seek. That way all the candidates could begin to work on common ideas and decide later who to challange. An existing council person can even wait to select which seat they want to seek. What this town needs is good discussion first and get down to the bad negitive campaigns later. Maybe all the new candidates could meet together and help each other understand how to run the best campaign possible. Joint messages. Joint doorbelling. Doorbelling for each other. WOW. This could be fun.
