BELLINGHAM - Ken Mann is seeking a second term on the Whatcom County Council, saying his first four years have been "an inspiring experience."
In a press release, Mann noted that he has served on the council's planning and development committee and public works committee. He also chaired the finance committee for the past four years. He served on the committee that renegotiated a Lummi Island ferry lease with Lummi Nation, argued against stiffer restrictions on wind power development, and was an enthusiastic backer of the transfer of state land in the Lake Whatcom watershed to county control.
If voters re-elect him, Mann said he would "continue to bring my experience as a businessman, my dedication as an environmentalist, and my skills as engineer and problem-solver to the council."
Mann and his wife, Amy, develop commercial and residential real estate and own a property management business. He formerly worked as a civil engineer at 2020 Engineering.
