Personal Statement for My Everett News

Greg Lineberry

Everett City Council District 2

After returning home from service in the U.S. Army, Greg lived in Everett working first at the Pay ‘n Pak hardware in south Everett, and then at the Weyerhaeuser paper plant in north Everett. He joined the Everett Police Department in 1989. Greg proudly served Everett residents for over 32 years and worked his way up to the rank of captain. During his years with Everett PD he worked night shift in central Everett along the Evergreen corridor. He was also the narcotics unit supervisor before being promoted to lieutenant. Greg retired from the Everett Police Department in June of this year to take a position with the Lake Stevens School District as their Safety, Security, and Health Specialist.

Greg lived in Everett for most of his professional career, which is very uncommon in the Everett Police Department. Greg states, “As a police officer it was important to me to live in Everett. I always felt much closer to the community I served and better educated about community issues because I lived in Everett, supported Everett businesses, and was active in the Everett community.”

Greg is a graduate of Everett Community College. He takes great pride and great satisfaction in community service and continues work with many organizations providing exceptional service to our city. In 1995 and ’96 he was the board chair for the Snohomish County PUD citizen advisory committee. He joined the board of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County in 2005 and served on that board until 2013 after completing two years as board president. Greg has been a member of the Rotary Club of Everett since 2013 and is currently the club president. He has been on the board of directors for Domestic Violence Service of Snohomish County since 2018. Greg was a strong and active supporter for creating council districts in Everett, explaining that citizens should know who their council representative is and who is responsible for their neighborhoods. He wrote much of the language that Everett voters approved to add to the City Charter to create council districts.

Greg has a long list of endorsements and supporters. They include the sole endorsement of Everett Council Members Brenda Stonecipher, Judy Tuohy, Jeff More, and Scott Murphy; Retired Everett Mayor Ed Hansen; Retired Everett Mayor Pete Kinch; Retired Everett Mayor Frank Anderson; the Everett Police Officers Association; the Everett Police Management Association; Everett Firefighters (Local 46); Everett Transit (ATU 883); and the Everett Municipal Employees (AFSCME 113); the Affordable Housing Council; Ed Peterson (Founding Executive Director Housing Hope); Vicci Hilty (Executive Director Domestic Violence Services Snohomish County); Bill Tsoukalas (Executive Director Boys and Girls Clubs Snohomish County); Representative Mike Sells; Representative John Lovick; Representative Lillian Ortiz-Self; Mukilteo Mayor Jennifer Gregerson and Council Member Louis Harris; County Treasurer Brian Sullivan; and the 21st Legislative District Democrats.
