Letter: Rohrbough clarifies experience, support

Jul 26, 2017

In response to Ms. Khan’s July 19 letter to the editor (“Rohrbough’s claim to finance committee misleading”).

I applied and was appointed to the Long-Range Finance Committee in 2014. I held that position until I decided to step down at the beginning of 2017 as I began my campaign.

I had the opportunity to get to know Ben Hempstead and his wife as both Ben and I had the opportunity to speak on the TEDxSnoIsleLibraries stage in 2015. As any TEDx speaker would tell you, it was an incredibly intense experience where we formed a mutual respect.

Through my continued service as a board member of the Sno-Isle Library Foundation and being hired as one of their speaker coaches, I continue to run into Ben and his wife at various related events.

The truth is I have not taken any money from any corporation, company or organization, political or otherwise. I am proud at the level of support I have received from the individuals who have come to know, respect and trust me.

I am also the only candidate running for position 1 that has been endorsed by both the Mukilteo Firefighters and The Everett Herald.

I am an experienced leader and an active community member, and I seek to represent all who call Mukilteo home, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or employer.

These are just a few reasons why voters should consider me as their next council member for Position 1.


Anna Rohrbough
candidate, City Council Position 1

The Long Range Finance Committee was a two year appointment that ended May 2017. There was no "stepping down". The Committee did not meet for over a year after it was appointed. The City's web site shows minutes from one meeting, August 2016. There were no studies or reports to the Council. Three new members of that Committee were appointed in May 2017 and now we will see if they do anything to fulfill their charter.  I do not know why you and the other Committee member keep emphasizing that you were on this Committee which did not do anything.
