Guier to seek her second full term as Pacific’s mayor

Leanne Guier says her passion for public service has compelled her to run for reelection as Pacific’s mayor.

“I am doing all that I can to bring the residents of Pacific all that they deserve,” Guier said.

Indeed, a peek at her schedule shows her to be a busy person.

Before her appointment to the City Council in 2009, Guier, a 20-year resident of the city, volunteered with Pacific Partnerships, the White River Valley Lions Club, and other city boards and committees.

She is a board member of Terry Home, a nonprofit organization that provides homes for young adult survivors of traumatic brain injury.

She represents the residents of Pacific on the King County Regional Transit Committee, the Growth Management Planning Council, the King County Flood Control District Advisory Committee, the Regional Water Quality Control Committee.

She is the president of the Sound Cities Association.

Recently, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee appointed her to the State Building Code Council as a representative of the Association of Washington Cities.

“I volunteer to sit on the various boards because it is important to me that Pacific is well known and well represented,” Guier explained.

In July 2013, the City Council unanimously appointed her as mayor. Two years later, the residents of Pacific elected her as mayor in her own right by nearly 80 percent of the vote.

Guier launched her campaign at a recent, supporter-packed event at the Pacific Quality Inn.
