Yesterday, Mayor Jon Mutchler and City Administrator Greg Young traveled to Olympia to lobby legislators on behalf of Ferndale’s interests. The State Legislature is in session and discussing a wide range of topics that affect city efforts. Mutchler and Young met with Rep. Luanne Van Werven and Rep. Vincent Buys, legislators that represent Ferndale in the state house.
“It’s important that Ferndale’s voice is heard in the halls of Olympia, and I’m proud to report that our meetings with Buys and Van Werven were very productive,” said Mutchler.
Mutchler and Young also met with a few other legislators and shared their perspective on regional issues. All the meetings were set up by Brian Enslow, a lobbyist retained by the City starting in 2017.
