Standing with family and neighborhood leaders, Parks & Community Services Board Member Jared Nieuwenhuis announced his candidacy for Bellevue City Council earlier today. The longtime Bellevue community volunteer spoke about his priorities for Bellevue.

“As your Councilmember, I’ll focus on putting our neighborhoods first, keeping our community safe, bringing real reform and transparency to City Hall, and supporting sustainable growth,” he said.
