Ronald Wastewater Commissioner: Statement from Craig Degginger

Monday, October 28, 2019

Incumbent Craig Degginger is running unopposed for his position as Ronald Wastewater District Commissioner Pos #4. His statement follows.

Craig Degginger, Commissioner
Ronald Wastewater District

Thank you for the opportunity to serve on the Ronald Wastewater District Board of Commissioners. I was appointed to the board in June 2019.

I am committed to ensuring that Ronald continues to provide the quality of service at a reasonable cost that ratepayers have come to expect over the last 70 years. Ronald is maintaining and upgrading its infrastructure as our community grows.

Our Shoreline community is undergoing a transformation not seen in this area in decades, with light rail service scheduled to begin in five years and a number of large multi-family developments under construction or in the planning stages. It will be a busy time for the RWD to handle these requests for new service and to ensure the infrastructure is adequate. The Board of Commissioners plays an important role in reviewing capital projects to enhance the system capacity and maintain the expected level of service.

Current litigation continues around the assumption by the city and future service to that portion that of the Ronald district that lies in Snohomish County. It is incumbent on the commissioners to act in the best interest of the ratepayers as it works with the city to complete the assumption of the utility.

My family has lived in Shoreline since 1990 and our daughter graduated from Shoreline Schools. I bring to the Ronald Wastewater Board 37 years of experience in communications, including 20 years in the government sector, and the past 13 years in K-12 education. I previously worked as a community journalist.

My past volunteer service includes the City of Shoreline Economic Development Advisory Committee, which advised the city as it created an economic development plan, the Shoreline Back to School Consortium and the King County Fair Board.
