Bellevue resident runs for city council position

March 12, 2013 by  

The commissioner for Bellevue parks, Lynne Robinson, has recently announced that she will be running for Position 6 on the Bellevue City Council.

The seat is held by Don Davidson currently, who has been a member of the council since 1984 and has twice been the mayor of Bellevue during that period. During the period leading up to the elections, the services of local stationery printers may be utilized as each candidate battles to win public votes.

Robinson owns a small business in addition to being an advocate for seniors. She is also married with two children. Robinson spoke of her enthusiasm for serving the people of Bellevue, referring to some of the current issues on the council as a waste of resources and time. She believes that resources should be used to provide basic services, caring for neighborhoods in the area, and creating job growth. Robinson has worked for more than 10 years to improve quality of life for people in Bellevue, Washington as Chair for the Bellevue Parks Board and Chair of Bellevue Network on Aging.

The commissioner says she intends to meet people in Bellevue by going to their homes and listening to concerns and ideas. Local flyer printing services will probably be required to produce her promotional literature. She is already in the Bellevue area each day, working with children and their families, in addition to working with seniors.
The candidate filing week will be the week commencing May 13 and the general election will be held November 5 this year.
