McVeigh is running for San Juan County Council Position #1 

Friday Harbor --- Kari McVeigh has announced her candidacy for the open seat on the San Juan County Council District 1. 

McVeigh, current Superintendent for the Shaw Island School District and former Superintendent for the San Juan Island School District, is running for the County Council to help build consensus on the future of our San Juan Islands community. 

“My goal as a Councilmember is to listen to the community as we work together to address the important issues we are facing - affordable housing, community health improvement, and stewardship of our natural resources through balanced and sustainable budgets, ” McVeigh said. “Continuing to work closely with our legislators in Olympia will be key to our success in transportation, economic development, and educational improvement.” McVeigh is seeking a new challenge in helping to create a more resilient and more equitable community through effective governance.
