I have had the privilege of working with Melissa Beaton for over 20 years and most recently have been honored to serve the citizens of Skagit County with her as an elected official.
Although I do not live in Mount Vernon, I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa for Mount Vernon City Council. Melissa understands complex issues such as affordable housing, growth management and budgets. Melissa also understands both the needs of the community and its government and is willing to put the time and energy into finding that balance.
Mount Vernon is lucky to have a person of Melissa’s caliber who is willing to serve her community.
