I support Gary Fancher for the non-partisan office of Snoqualmie Valley School Board Director, District 4. He is an active member of the community, a loving father and husband, and a thoughtful businessman engaged in technical services.
The primary quality that best describes Gary is his thoughtful approach to issues. He does his homework by reaching out to others for their take on matters, by studying the public and academic record, attempting to find common ground.
Currently he and I both serve on the North Bend Planning Commission. Gary was voted Chair of the Commission by his peer commissioners. His hallmark is always coming to the biweekly meetings prepared and ready to lead the body into what often become lengthy, technical discussions. It’s his nature to strive for consensus.
As a school board director, Gary will bring the same level of passion and achievement for the student body, teachers, and administrators of the district as he has for the North Bend Planning Commission on behalf of the city council and citizens of North Bend.
Gary embraces challenges. Living within the Middle Fork basin, just a short distance from the Twin Falls Middle School, Gary reached out to his neighbors, summarized their concerns, and advocated for, and obtained, road improvements within the basin to increase safety.
That took a lot of networking and researching. It’s the same kind of tenacity and success that Gary will bring to the school board. He will add to its cohesive, forward direction.
