The City of Lynnwood proactively engages with Washington State Legislators, often with our 21st and 32nd district legislators, including the Washington State Congressional leaders, to advocate and convey our City’s legislative priorities. Many decisions that are made in Olympia and Washington, D.C., have direct or indirect impacts on our City’s ability to provide program and services to the people of Lynnwood. When our legislators know our City priorities and community stories from residents and business owners related to those priorities, they are better equipped to represent our interests in Olympia and D.C. Each year, Lynnwood Officials develop the City's Legislative Priorities.
Our 2021 priorities:
As we continue to respond to the global pandemic of the Coronavirus and its severe impacts on all aspects of our lives, the City of Lynnwood is dedicated to continuing efforts to support our local community. We accomplish this through the delivery of critical city services, partnerships and collaborations with other governmental agencies and non-profit partners, and advocacy for increased relief efforts from State and Federal lawmakers.
Looking forward into 2021, Lynnwood’s Legislative Priorities are aligned to our community vision and our strategic priorities to support our current services and to build the future that the Lynnwood community seeks. We will accomplish this through realizing new efficiencies, forging partnerships, rooting out injustices and increasing equity, and remaining committed to fiscal sustainability and strategic priorities for a positive future. We ask for your continued support as leaders of Washington State, and thank you for your public service.
