Shirley Sutton, "write-in" candidate for the Lynnwood City Council 2013 position 3, has resided in the City of Lynnwood since 2001. She is currently retired after spending the last 13 years working at Edmonds Community College as the Executive Director, Diversity Affairs and Community Outreach. Her spouse recently retired as Human Resource Manager for the City of Yakima.  They have been married for 40 years.


She believes in maintaining a healthy and thriving community where all residents are encouraged to voice their concerns and needs to City leadership and give their time, energy and suggestions to make our neighborhoods safe and welcoming for everyone.  ​


With the city's demographics increasing and limited resources, her priority is economic and community development.  Therefore, it is important that city leadership be accountable, responsible and transparent at every level and is committed to supporting polices that are in the best interest of our families and businesses.
