About the Mayor

Mayor's Priorities

- Downtown revitalization, which include combating crime, cleanup and investment in public spaces, and attracting and retaining a mix of businesses that create a more walkable, pedestrian-friendly downtown and waterfront area
- Maintaining public safety as a top priority and ensuring that integrated and innovative approaches to policing are responsive to community needs and built around a partnership of trust between citizens and police personnel 
- Expanding economic development efforts to provide more services for our residents as well as adding more family-wage jobs in Marysville, with a specific focus on creating a master-planned manufacturing/industrial job center in the Smokey Point area east of I-5
- Improving traffic circulation and alleviating traffic congestion through major road construction projects like those completed in the past few years, including the 156th Street/I-5 overpass in the Lakewood-Smokey Point area, 51st Avenue extension connecting 84th to 88th, SR92/SR 9 break in access in the Sunnyside-Whiskey Ridge area, and sidewalk/shoulder improvements
- Proactively making local investments and working with our state and federal elected officials to obtain funding for much-needed major transportation improvements such as the proposed I-5/SR 529 interchange, connecting on- and off-ramps to the existing 156th overcrossing to create a new interchange, and the widening of State Avenue from three to five lanes 
- Developing parks on property that the city already owns. Building more trails for our parks inventory including the third phase of Bayview Trail in the eastside Marysville foothills, and expanding a trail within the Qwuloolt Estuary Restoration Project (phase one opened in 2017)
- Maintaining customer service, transparency and accountability in city government, and prioritizing constituent issues with prompt response 
- Investing in our water infrastructure so that Marysville can be self-sufficient in providing water to residents and businesses. This will provide for stable rates far into the future and allow us to avoid paying the much higher rates that other cities are faced with when purchasing water from other jurisdictions 
- Partnering with our residents and business to "clean up Marysville" and show real pride in our community, an effort that greatly benefits all of us
