Bellevue City Councilmember Lynne Robinson has announced her re-election campaign for the 2017 City Council election.

Robinson was first elected to the council in 2013 after serving as Bellevue Parks Board chair. She is a physical therapist by trade and owns a small business.

In her tenure on the council, small business development, affordable housing and Bellevue’s parks have been her largest motivators.

“It has been my honor to serve Bellevue as a member of our City Council,” Robinson said in a press release. “I am proud of the work we have started, but there is still a great deal to be done. I hope I have earned the continued support of our community so that we can ensure Bellevue remains a great place to be.”

She helped develop a “start-up” economic development plan and led the city’s efforts to receive TechHire education funding.

Robinson worked with Mayor John Stokes on creating an affordable housing strategic plan with the goal of developing 250 affordable housing units a year.

King County Councilmember and former Bellevue Mayor Claudia Balducci offered her support in Robinson’s re-election efforts.

“Before joining the council, Lynne had a long and proven record on behalf of Bellevue residents through her work improving health and well-being for local seniors and as Parks Board chair and chair of the Bellevue Network on Aging. She has brought that same passion, commitment and dedication to the City Council and deserves our full support.”

Robinson has lived in the Woodridge neighborhood of Bellevue with her husband since 1997. Her two children graduated in the Bellevue School District.
