The only solution for moving forward is working together as one community.
Deciding to run for City Council was an easy decision because Kennewick has been my community for over 32 years, and I want to see the city of Kennewick prosper and succeed!
You might be asking yourself, why should I vote for Jim Millbauer as my next elected official for Kennewick City Council? I have spent my career as a professional pipefitter with UA Local 598, and for the last 21 years, I have proudly served and represented hard working men and women at Hanford as a Project Steward. I am also a problem-solver who listens, creates opportunities for collaboration, and finds solutions that work for everyone. You can be sure that I am capable of leading the way in bringing people together, so that we can put Kennewick in a position to succeed.
My career is not only a job to me, it is a reflection of my values and of the importance of serving others. This has always been an important part of my life. For this reason, I extensively volunteer on a variety of boards and for organizations such as united way, bikes for tikes, and after school matters. Volunteering also supports my strong belief that we all need to do our part in making Kennewick a more thriving community!
On November 5th, your support will mean coming together to listen to one another and problem-solve, while finding solutions that work for everyone. I promise to bring my leadership and negotiating experience to the table and work with all of my fellow city council members to ensure that Kennewick remains prosperous.
We can accomplish this by creating more opportunity for economic development, making public safety a priority, and working on building a better community, through projects that support responsible growth. Over the course of this campaign, my team and I have knocked on hundreds of doors. Kennewick residents have voiced their concerns and views about the issues that matter most to them. I have heard them and will tackle the tough issues facing our city including mental health, homelessness, and addiction. I can’t emphasize enough that the only solution for moving forward is working together as one community. I respectfully ask for your support and vote, so that together, we make Kennewick the safe, welcoming, and thriving community that it is!!!
