John Wright to seek reelection to Lake Forest Park City Council

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Lake Forest Park City Councilman John Wright announced Monday that he will seek re-election to a second term
"After talking with family and friends, I'm pleased to announce that I will be a candidate for re-election to position 3 on the Lake Forest Park City Council this year. 
"It has been a tremendous honor for me to serve the Citizens of Lake Forest Park as a member of the City Council. During these challenging times of high unemployment and scarce revenue, we have made great progress in streamlining city operations to deliver our services within our financial constraints and without sacrificing quality. 
"By listening to citizens and working together, we have preserved LFP's unique 'urban forest' environment, secured funding to eliminate future flooding in our Town Center and Sheridan Beach, expanded our park system, and worked to ensure the future health of our neighborhoods. I am proud of the work we've done, and look forward to continued success serving the City that I call home."
