Bonney Lake Mayor seeks third term

Bonney Lake Mayor Neil Johnson filed to seek a third term as mayor this morning.

Bonney Lake Mayor Neil Johnson filed to seek a third term as mayor this morning.

“We have come a long way in building a strong community and team, so we need to stay the course to complete what we have started.  My theme has always been “Think Bonney Lake First”, and everything I have tried to do has been with the best interests of the community in mind,” said Johnson.

Since being elected mayor in November 2005 and again in 2009, Johnson has worked with the council to create a long-term vision and a team atmosphere. During his first two terms, the city achieved stability among staff in all departments keeping costs down and providing valuable service to all citizens. The stability allowed the city to focus on long term planning, planning for growth, continued efficient and effective public safety, continued improvement of our local lakes, parks, implementing the sidewalk, streetlight and downtown plans. Soon you will be able to walk from east town to downtown using our newly constructed sidewalks. The other big items include the creation of Main Street, the construction of the justice building and the soon to be installed sewer system in east town.

Over the last four years, Johnson worked with the council to bring the Good Samaritan health complex, the soon to be completed Franciscan complex, and improvements to the midtown area. In addition, Johnson continues to work on improving current parks and open space while looking for other opportunities to acquire open space for future recreation needs in the Bonney Lake area. Since becoming mayor, Johnson has been able to secure more than $3,000,000 in grants for the city.

More information will be available soon, but if you have any questions please contact Mayor Neil Johnson at neiljohnsonjr@comcast.net
