Swansen has what it takes to solve problems

It’s time we elected a candidate who has the citizens and cities best interest at heart.

Andrew Swansen is that candidate.

He’s lived in the city for 18 years, raised his family here, is involved in the community and is not a career politician. He is a concerned citizen and seasoned businessman and will bring experience to Kent to solve the challenges the current and previous council has not.

We need a leader who has vision, ideas and solutions to Kent’s challenges – public safety, the city budget, housing, traffic, development land use and the ShoWare Center, to name a few.

Swansen will help solve these issues with his background in innovation and technology. He will bring that experience to City Hall, hold our elected leaders accountable and always put our citizens and city priorities first.

We cannot afford to just promote our existing city officials. They have been unable to solve these issues, yet they continue to ask to be re-elected, telling us they need more years and time.

We deserve better, and Andrew Swansen is that change we need.

Please vote for change at City Hall. Vote Andrew Swansen for mayor.
