Mark Phillips announced Thursday that he is running for City Council in Lake Forest Park.

Phillips served two terms on the City’s Environmental Quality Commission, and one term on its Planning Commission. He was also chair of the Urban Forest Task Force, and for many years has been a leader of the Lake Forest Park Streamkeepers.

Phillips’ professional background is in corporate training and instructional design, with experience in the banking, insurance, municipal government and manufacturing fields. At Boeing he helped introduce lean manufacturing practices in the Everett factory. Phillips also worked for the Center for Manufacturing Excellence at Shoreline Community College, improving manufacturing training programs there and at other state community and technical colleges.

“As a 22-year resident, I know Lake Forest Park is a unique and special place.  Over the next two years, we will be updating our Comprehensive Plan, which will give us the opportunity to consider and affirm the core values that make Lake Forest Park a great place to live. From my work on the Planning Commission, I am very familiar with the current Comprehensive Plan and some of the ways it needs to be updated since it was last reviewed in 2005. I am running for the City Council to provide experience and balance to that process, and to the many other matters that will come before the Council over the next four years.” 
“While there are many issues facing Lake Forest Park, I believe our top priorities should include establishing long-term fiscal stability, enabling greater citizen access to government, improving the quality of information about government functions available to the public, and preserving our great environmental resources.”
