LFP Deputy Mayor Catherine Stanford
Deputy Mayor Catherine Stanford of Lake Forest Park has been elected a 2018 Sound Cities Association (SCA) Director at Large, one of the top five officers of the organization, which represents 38 King County cities and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

“Deputy Mayor Stafford brings tremendous experience to our Board and is known as catalyst who can get things done, locally and regionally,” said Deanna Dawson, SCA Executive Director. 
“We look forward to her leadership as an officer of our Association in 2018.”

SCA provides regional direction in areas such as economic and community development, transportation, land use, health, government operations, the environment, education, public safety, social welfare and other public policy issues.

Catherine Stanford was first elected to City Council in 2008 and is currently serving her third term on the Council. Prior to serving on the Council, she served on the Lake Forest Park Planning Commission for ten years (Chair for five) and the Board of Third Place Commons, chairing the Farmers Market Committee.

Deputy Mayor Stanford also served as President, Puget Sound Regional Council Economic Development District Board, and is a Board Member, King County Economic Development Council.

Her career spans over 35 years in commercial real estate and includes work in both the public and the private sectors. She is currently the owner of a Seattle-based consulting business that specializes in real estate and assists clients in government and public affairs; strategic planning; and property development. Her clients include municipalities; developers; non-profit groups and industry associations. She also teaches classes in Strategic Facilities Planning and Project Management.

Prior to starting her own business, she was the Director of Real Estate for Pike Place Market in Seattle; Corporate Real Estate Manager for a worldwide high-tech manufacturing company in the San Francisco Bay area; and Director of Asset Management for a real estate development company, also located in the San Francisco Bay area.

SCA, which was formerly known as the Suburban Cities Association, was established more than 40 years ago to help King County cities act locally and partner regionally to create vital and thriving communities through advocacy, education, leadership, mutual support and networking.
