Local community leader John Resha announced his candidacy for Lake Forest Park City Council today.

Resha seeks one of three council seats that will be vacated in the 2013 elections.

“I want Lake Forest Park to be a sustainable community where people can belong, connect and live now and in the years to come. When that vision is combined with the pressures of leading through tough financial years and the upcoming vacant leadership positions in our City Council, I am compelled to seek a return to elected service.” said Resha.

Resha identified his top priorities as providing steadfast, experienced leadership to deliver sustainable policy and financial actions based on the priorities of Lake Forest Park (LFP) residents and business; actively engaging and promoting a community-centered vision for LFP; and supporting the vision and stewardship of the people by taking action to ensure that LFP is a place not a pass through.

He currently serves as a non-political analyst and advisor to the King County Council, leading issues such as transportation and countywide performance management. 

With more than twenty years of executive and community leadership, including LFP Planning Commissioner (2011-12), and as elected Councilmember for the City of Redmond, WA (2003-07), John is uniquely positioned to bring that steady hand of experience to Lake Forest Park.

John declares his candidacy with a strong base of support including endorsements from all three of outgoing LFP City Councilmembers Don Fiene, Sandy Koppenol and Robert Lee, King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski, as well as many other past and current residents and leaders of Lake Forest Park.

So, Feine, Koppenol and Lee won't run? What's happening?

Are council seats vacated, or just up for re-election?
