Community leader, environmental champion and chair of the successful Everett Districts Now campaign Megan Dunn has announced she is running for Snohomish County Council, Position 2.
“I’m excited to start this conversation – and campaign – about what kind of new leadership we want for Snohomish County. We can’t just be surviving. We deserve to be thriving,” said Megan Dunn. “With more than 20 years of experience in nonprofit leadership and advocacy, I have a passion for bringing together diverse partnerships and building community. We need to address our social and public safety issues and enforce meaningful policy change for sustainable development and environmental conservation. I believe with vibrant community leadership and a government that responds to residents, we can build a bright future for everyone in Snohomish County.”
Megan is a proven leader for public policy changes that improve the lives of our communities.
With Megan’s leadership, the Everett Districts Now campaign, a nonpartisan grassroots collation, successfully established city council districts for Everett. This major policy change addresses disparities in representation and gives all residents greater participation in the democratic process.
Megan successfully worked with Everett Parks Department to implement an Integrated Pest Management Plan to reduce pesticide use and exposure across our communities and is now working on bring Zero Waste efforts to Snohomish County. She also spent 10 years fighting for working families, where she helped secure a citywide contract which included the first ever guaranteed sick days, raises for workers and safer working conditions. She is running with the support and encouragement of Brian Sullivan, who is at his term limit for this seat.
She also has the endorsement of longtime Everett councilmember Brenda Stonecipher who said: “Megan has a strong record of service to the residents of our city. She has distinguished herself as a champion for sensible growth, solutions for homelessness, environmental protection, and political representation for underserved areas. I admire Megan’s courage and tenacity in taking on difficult issues and positions that matter to citizens, as well as her diligence in researching the best solutions for our community. I support Megan for County Council because I know she will work hard for her district.”
Megan is the Healthy People and Communities Program Director for Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides (NCAP). She has a Biology-Geology degree from University of Rochester, NY and Master of Arts in Policy Studies from University of Washington-Bothell. Megan lives with her husband and two middle school-aged children in the Lowell Neighborhood of Everett, WA.
