Voter Pamphlet

The balance between development, infrastructure and environmental protection in Sammamish needs to be restored. I’m running for Sammamish City Council for three reasons.

Neighborhood Character: We must have a vision for our diverse city that retains the natural beauty of a bedroom community. I will work to change city code and improve design standards. Environment: As a forest firefighter I fought to save the forest. I will fight to preserve, protect, and restore the natural environment in Sammamish. Transportation and infrastructure: I will only support development that provides adequate infrastructure, transportation and public safety. 

If we accept maximum density, we will lose the beauty, safety and character of our community. I will use the tools in the Growth Management Act as intended to control growth. My wife, Debbie, served Bothell as a neighborhood advocate, Councilmember and Mayor, and I bring the same bold leadership to Sammamish. Vote for Kent Treen.

Education: Master’s in Education, Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Theology, AS degree in Forestry
Occupation: Educator of at-risk students for Bellevue School District.
