My name is Liz Vogeli and I am running for Everett City Council, District 4. You’ve seen me in such elections as “Special Election 2018” and “General Election 2019”. The year is 2021 and I am back to earn your vote once again for the Everett City Council. I am the first person to be elected from South West Everett and, now that we have accomplished districts, I will not be the last. Previous to my work on council I organized the Westmont-Holly Neighborhood Association after years of its inactivity, volunteered with organizations such as NAACP-SCB, C3, Casino Rd. Stakeholders, and more. Since my time on council, I have continued my volunteer work in the community by holding “Housing Round Tables”, participating in community groups such as EFIA, and continually leading the monthly “March in Solidarity with Immigrants and Refugees” (and clean-up) on W. Casino Rd.

While performing my duties for City Council I have engaged as liaison for the Historical Commission, Everett Housing Authority, Transportation Advisory Committee, Snohomish County Tomorrow, and various neighborhood groups. I also serve on the Public Safety and Crime Prevention committee for the National League of Cities.

My time on council has been filled with working towards housing and safety for all our residents as well as helping to determine a fiscally responsible budget. The information, data, and experience I have brought forward has helped residents and elected officials see our city issues through a different lens, one that is often overlooked. I have not always been on the majority side of the council vote but I have been on the people’s side. With your vote I will continue to be courageous and not be afraid to speak up and speak out for what is good and just. I will continue to read the fine print to make sure your tax dollars are being spent wisely, and I will continue to listen to you. Thank you for voting in local elections!
