North Bend City Councilman Ross Loudenback has announced his plans to run for re-election to the council.

“I look forward to the honor and privilege of serving the citizens of North Bend for another term in office,” he said last week.

Loudenback holds Position 4 on the North Bend City Council, on which he has served since 2009. He is currently serving as the chairperson on the city’s Public Works and Transportation Committee, as well as on the Public Issues Committee of the Sound Cities Association and as president of the Snoqualmie Valley Governments Association.

“Here in North Bend, we have a number of great opportunities and challenges moving forward. I would like the opportunity to continue in my role as the Public Works and Transportation Committee chairperson, in helping to rebuild the wastewater treatment plant, improving and maintaining the road system, the redevelopment of downtown and the addition of our first modern hotel facility,” Loudenback said.

“Some of the challenges for North Bend include maintaining a livable rural city lifestyle while balancing commercial and residential growth. I will use my experience and knowledge gained by representing North Bend on the Public Issues Committee of the Sound Cities Association and as president of the Snoqualmie Valley Governments Association to help guide that effort.”

The general election will be Tuesday, Nov. 7.
