Renton – Community Leader Marcie Maxwell announced her campaign today for Mayor of Renton.

“We have seen such big changes in the last several years and those changes are going to keep coming. We need someone who is part of the fabric of Renton but who can also work with regional and state officials. I believe I bring that track record of experience to build off the success that Renton is having,” said Marcie Maxwell.

Recently, Marcie was the senior education policy adviser to Gov. Jay Inslee after serving three terms as the State Representative from the 41st Legislative District.

You have been an amazing public servant and community activist.  I am certain you would be an excellent mayor.  – Lesley Austin, Former Issaquah School Board Director

Renton and the region would be fortunate to have, in you, someone who understands and can navigate the complexities of governing in a difficult political environment – someone who will undoubtedly expand the City’s regional and national profile to benefit all of your constituent interests.   – Greg & Sherre Piantanida, Renton

Marcie is an honorable, thoughtful and effective leader. I couldn’t think of any individual more qualified to lead the City of Renton and its citizens into an even more prosperous future. She’s the real deal.   – Kevyn Leiner & Pamela Dunning, Renton

She has received the Renton Citizen of the Year award and the Renton Outstanding Citizen Award.
