brad adams 2015Brad Adams is the first sitting City Council member to announce his intention to run for re-election in this November's election. 

In a prepared statement, Adams said he wants to continue to represent the citizens of Ward 2, which contains many residential neighborhoods in the southern parts of town, a large portion of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands, and the Highway 20 corridor leading to the eastern city limits.

Adams said, "This next term promises to be very active as the Council works through and completes the Comprehensive Plan Update, revises City Codes and Development Regulations to align with that process, and, along with the Mayor, develops and initiates Strategic Planning that puts the final product into motion."

Adams said he is looking forward to being involved in the pivotal processes and doing his part to develop planning and deliver execution that truly represents the citizens of Ward 2 and Anacortes as a whole in the years to come.

"I enjoy serving on the Council and I believe I can continue to make positive contributions as an Anacortes City Council Member. I would appreciate the support of the voters of Ward 2 in this next election season, his statement concluded."

Three of the seven City Council members, those representing wards, are up for election this November. The other four Council members are at large and will be up for election in 2017.
