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.
Joined by Bellevue City Councilmember Jennifer Robertson, Jared Nieuwenhuis outlined his vision for Bellevue, including his focus of putting neighborhoods first.
“Jared’s dedication to our community demonstrates exactly the type of leadership we need from our next City Councilmember,” Robertson said.
“Bellevue is an incredible place to raise a family, start or grow a business, or enjoy our tremendous parks and natural beauty,” continued Nieuwenhuis. “Whether it’s eliminating traffic, protecting our environment, reducing regulations on local businesses, or strengthening public safety, I’ll work to make sure Bellevue continues to be the vibrant, thriving community we know and love.”
Stephanie Walter, Vice-Chair of the Bellevue Planning Commission, highlighted Jared’s focus of listening to voters and tackling the important issues facing Bellevue.
