Yet another candidate has entered the race for Edmonds City Council. Planning Board member Alicia Crank Monday announced her campaign for Position 5. She will be running for the seat held by Dave Teitzel, who is not seeking re-election.
“As your councilmember, I will work hard to ensure that all of us who live and work Edmonds home come together for the betterment of everyone,” Crank said. “From our teenagers and working-age residents to our senior citizens, renters to homeowners, we can all work together to improve our government transparency, housing affordability, smart growth, economic development and sustainability opportunities.”
Crank is running for the same position that she sought four years ago, when — as a recent transplant from Mountain View, Calif. — she lost to Teitzel in the 2015 general election. She will be facing already-declared candidate Vivian Olson, who has been endorsed by Teitzel.
Crank has served on several local boards and commissions, including the Edmonds Senior Center and the Edmonds Sister City Commission. She is serving her third year on the Edmonds Planning Board and as vice chair of the Snohomish County (Paine Field) Airport Commission.
She is currently employed as a corporate relations officer for YWCA Seattle.
Crank has received endorsements from former Edmonds City Councilmember Joan Bloom, Edmonds School District Board Member Carin Chase, and community leaders Denise Miller, Michelle Van Tassel, Haifa Alhussieni, Susan Paine and Crystal Carlson.
