In next week’s election, the citizens of the Snoqualmie Valley have the chance to elect Dariel Norris, a highly qualified long-time local resident to position 2 on the board of commissioners of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital.
As a friend, neighbor and colleague of Dariel’s for over 30 years I can attest to her unflagging energy and dedication to serving her community. A qualified nurse working at Harborview, Dariel retired from that profession to raise her eight children and directed her considerable talents into working with the Preston Community Club to fend off inappropriate development and to build the park and soccer fields that are proving to be a regional benefit.
After countless hours working on appeals and sitting in meetings Dariel and other Community Club members were able to negotiate better environmental and community protection during the development of the industrial park. She then moved on to become a significant member of the team that put together the Preston Park, working with King County and other stakeholders, all while running her own business.
As a hospital commissioner, Dariel will continue to serve her community with integrity and commitment.
