Dave Somers -Snohomish County Executive
Over the next four years, my top priorities are to provide more affordable housing – so families, seniors, and working people aren’t priced out of our communities.

I’ll continue promoting small business growth and sustainable economic development – aviation biofuels, clean energy and aerospace manufacturing, and expanding technology and healthcare jobs. I’ll ensure light rail is delivered to our communities as quickly as possible. I truly appreciate your support and pledge to continue delivering collaborative solutions– driven leadership for Snohomish County – with a commitment to the accountability and transparency you deserve.
