Jeans said there are exciting things on the horizon in Snoqualmie – like new homes, bold new businesses and new opportunities for recreation and improved transportation. He said he wants to continue to be part of the decision-making process “whether the gains outweigh the costs for all of our citizens and businesses.”
He added, “I would like to continue building mutually beneficial relationships with our neighbors, such as the Snoqualmie Tribe, the Northwest Railway Museum, the Snoqualmie School District and the Snoqualmie Hospital.”
Jeans has served as city council position 1 since 2006. His children and grandchildren also reside in Snoqualmie. His current term expires on December 31st.
City council candidates have until May to file. The November General Election is scheduled for November 7th. A summer primary would be needed if more than two candidates file to run for the same council position.
Council members Bryan Holloway, Heather Munden and Kathi Prewitt also have terms that expire at the end of the year, but have not yet formally announced if they will seek re-election. Council member Chelley Patterson recently announced her plans to move from Snoqualmie and when that happens, she will step down.
