George Hurst - Council Position #6

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about me.  I was elected to Lynnwood City Council Position 6 in 2015.  Previously I have served on the Lynnwood Planning Commission and the Transportation, Traffic Task Force.  As part of my current council duties I am Council Liaison to the Planning Commission and I serve on the City LEOFF Disability Board, The SnoCom Board, and I am Chair of the Lynnwood/Fire District 1 RFA Planning Committee.  

I have lived in Lynnwood since 1992 with my wife and four children.  All four are graduates of Lynnwood High School (when it was still in Lynnwood).  I have a BA in history/political science from the University of Washington and a MA in American History from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  So with that educational background it seems logical that I have been in the electrical/commercial lighting business for over 30 years...  OK, maybe that is not so logical but life is like that sometimes.  And now, with my business background combined with my education I have many ideas regarding how the City Council can best serve the people of Lynnwood.  I believe together, the City Council and engaged citizens will truly make Lynnwood a better place to live and work.  

I look forward to helping Lynnwood thrive as it grows and becomes a hub for south Snohomish County.
