Bob’s statement declaring run for re-election (posted on Facebook, Feb. 7th):
As most of you already know, I have again thrown my hat in the ring to run for re-election to the Auburn City Council, Position #7 in 2019. I have now registered with the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC), and during the month of May, will complete my registration with the King County and Pierce County Election’s Offices. Our city is a two county city and I want to thank those of you who cast your votes for me during the 2015 General Election, and I hope to continue to serve ALL of our residents in both counties and be your city’s voice in our 39-city region.
As I mentioned before, our city is growing with currently more than 80,000 residents, and there remains much work to be done as we move towards the 100,000 number in the next few years.
For the past three (3+) years, I have served as YOUR Councilmember and for 2018 as your Deputy Mayor. With council approval of our biennial budget for 2019-2020,
our Mayor and City Department Directors will continue to move our city forward. Just today, we broke ground on a new 7-story , mixed use building to be located directly across the street from the Merrill Gardens Retirement Center. This new building will be known as the Auburn Town Center, with retail on the ground floor and residences above. Another multi-story building is expected to break ground directly across Main Street from your City Hall perhaps this summer. Did I mention that we are growing?
On a very personal note, I again want to thank my lovely wife Pattee for her continued love and support, my many friends and colleagues at the city for their valued mentorship and guidance, and to the voters in our city who placed their confidence and trust in me in when I was elected to this office.
I will have so much more important information to share with everyone very soon as we move forward with the election process in 2019, so please stay tuned!! Thanks again!!
