To the Editor:
Over the course of the five-plus years that my family and I have lived in Ellensburg I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Stacey Bankston Engel as a friend, fellow mom of boys, professional and community volunteer.
In each of these areas of life Stacey has continued to astound me with her ability to truly “do it all” and do so with a grace and calmness about her at all times. I believe this comes from the fact that she chooses to dedicate her time to the things that matter to her the most: family and community.
When the opportunity arose for Stacey to be appointed to a seat on City Council in September 2018 she dove in wholeheartedly and became involved in tackling the local housing crisis as well as bolstering local parks and recreation. Stacey is not only passionate about these topics, but is most qualified given her background in commercial construction management. Stacey’s desire is to help strategically manage the growth that Ellensburg is currently experiencing and will continue to experience while maintaining it’s charm and family-friendly feel.
I hope you will join me in giving Stacey your vote in November for Ellensburg City Council 6.
