Randy Hayden to run for Edmonds City Council
Randy Hayden has announced he will run for a seat on the Edmonds City Council. He will run for Position 1, Michael Plunkett's vacated seat. Council member Kristiana Johnson was appointed to that position.
Hayden says he has actively lived and served in Edmonds about 25 years, and lived in the surrounding area another 25 years.
“Service to my community includes coaching, serving at the Union Gospel Mission, hosting classes on the Constitution and teaching the four, five and six year old children at my church,” Hayden said. “I also successfully run two companies.”
You may remember Hayden from the voters pamphlet, he ran for the state House of Representatives in the 32nd legislative district.
Hayden is on the Snohomish County Alcohol and Drug Advisory Board and the We Surround Puget Sound Board.
“I would be humbled, if elected, to bring my leadership and business experience to the Edmonds City Council,” he said. “My goals for Edmonds are to expand our tourism business downtown and bring more high tech jobs along the Hwy 99 corridor.
“I support the Harbor Square Development project under the current building codes and height restrictions.
“I encourage each Edmonds resident to help your own city by buying consumables such as groceries and gasoline in Edmonds and to use the services of Edmonds businesses whenever possible.”
Hayden says that running city government is no different than running a business or a household.
“I am big on fiscal responsibility,” he said.
He has been endorsed by Benjamin Goodwin, Lynnwood City Council; Rick Forschler, SeaTac City Council; and Roger Haskin, retired Stanwood City Council.
