Candidate Jenne Alderks Announces Campaign Update, Will Run For Bothell City Council Position 3

April 14th, 2021


BOTHELL, WA — Candidate Jenne Alderks (Pronounced Jenny with an 'E'), who announced their campaign for Bothell City Council earlier this year, has filed intentions to challenge for Position 3 held by incumbent Rosemary McAuliffe. Alderks is the third candidate, and second Democrat, to file for this seat.


In filing for this position, Alderks hopes to continue a legacy of progressive stewardship while emphasizing that her decision has little bearing on the incumbent. “I’m running because I want a City Council committed to healing the wounds of the past and focused on inclusive and equitable policymaking as we look to the future. This pandemic hit our working families hard and will have rippling effects for generations to come. As a working parent, as a small business owner, and as a Millennial affected by the changing economy, I feel my perspective is needed on the council.”


Alderks points to the similarities between both Democrats, with both having been spurred into political activism after bringing awareness to education disparities for their children with disabilities. “I’m inspired to run by the many women who stepped into political office to fight for their families, and by extension, their whole community,” they added.


Alderks makes this announcement on the same day as their campaign kick-off event, starting tonight at 7:30pm over Zoom.
