My name is Tracy Furutani, and I am running for position 6 on the Lake Forest Park City Council.
One of the things I love about Lake Forest Park is that you can see it just by looking at Google Maps: We’re the green spot at the north end of Lake Washington.
As a small business owner, I am keenly aware of the effect of taxes and regulations, and want to keep the hand of Lake Forest Park municipal government light. As a union activist, I have experience negotiating and finding consensus in difficult situations. And as a teacher, I know the importance of clear communication and accountability, and I will strive to bring those traits to my role in the community.
I’ve been a member of the Lake Forest Park Water District Advisory Committee and I have made presentations to Lake Forest Park Elementary School about the quality of our locally-sourced water and the students’ roles in preserving that quality.
In those students’ eyes, I see that they take great pride in our city. This is a great city, but we continue to struggle to fund our basic needs: parks, sidewalks, the court, police, safe streets and planning. I have ideas – like community grants and other external funding sources – about raising revenue for the city that do not rely solely on redevelopment that encourages traffic congestion and threatens the culture of what Lake Forest Park is – and should continue to be. I want to work with community, state, county and other city officials to find these alternate funding sources, since this is not a problem unique to our city.
If you want to see Lake Forest Park stay green, if you’re concerned about the unchecked pro-growth direction the city has taken in the past few years, if you simply want this city to take a more active role in county-wide and regional initiatives, please support me for City Council Position 6 on August 6!
