As a result of the election of Mike Nelson as mayor for the City of Edmonds, the council must now fill the vacancy of position #2. There is one person who would, in our opinion, be a perfect complement to the other six Council members.
We are writing in support of Nathan Monroe to fill the vacancy for that position.
We have the privilege of having Nate and his wife Jordan as our next-door neighbors and have gotten to know them quite well as wonderful people.
Nate Monroe would be the ideal addition to the Edmonds City Council. He is a lifelong resident of Edmonds and is intimately aware of what makes our city both unique and great.
Nate has an MBA in civil engineering and in his professional life works for Sound Transit. He is currently in charge of a $1.3 billion project, which is on time and under budget.
Nate has served for five years on the Edmonds Planning Board (chair 2018). He has a record of working with the city staff, city leaders and engaging with Edmonds citizens. This experience is especially important as the council will soon be addressing the redevelopment of Highway 99 and considering solutions to our railroad crossing and waterfront protection.
In Nate’s recent bid for position #7 on the City Council, he received more votes than any of the other non-elected candidates (6,929).
Nathan Monroe is a proven leader who works well with others. We believe he is the best person for the job and, along with nearly 7,000 Edmonds voters, we urge you to select Nathan Monroe to fill the vacancy on the Edmonds City Council.
