Statement from Candidate Chris Eggen's campaign:

Chris Eggen announced his candidacy Wednesday, March 9, for reelection to the Shoreline City Council.

Chris has served one term on the Council and has been a leader in promoting economic development, environmental issues, and parks and open spaces. He has strongly supported human services and veteran services in Shoreline. Chris is an outspoken advocate of open government and providing for public comment and participation in government. Chris has spoken out on the need to moderate the costs of city government and sponsored a review of the compensation policy in 2010.

Chris has represented Shoreline on numerous regional transit advisory committees, including the Regional Transit Task Force, which won an award for planning achievement from the Municipal League this year.

Chris favors limiting the Point Wells development to a size that can be supported by existing roads. He is seeking ways to develop parks at Aldercrest and Cedarbrook without spending public money to purchase land. Chris will work to shape a positive future for the Fircrest School, which includes continued services to severely developmentally disabled adults.

Outside the City Council, Chris served on the Shoreline Citizens Advisory Committee for Housing and is currently the Treasurer of the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars, a local nonprofit that awards scholarships to Shoreline students. He served on the board of the environmental groups Shoreline Solar Project and Sustainable Shoreline and has participated in many other Shoreline organizations, including the YMCA and youth soccer, basketball, and baseball.

Chris is a graduate of the University of Washington in Physics and Electrical Engineering, and served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam years. He and his wife Donna have lived in Shoreline for 35 years and raised two children who graduated from Shorecrest HS.
