Bill Knows His Way Around the District!
Bill is a 3rd Generation Snohomish County resident with a strong understanding of the Communities within District 1, and opporunities to work together towards a great future.
In Bill’s fifty four years in Snohomish County he has lived in several of the Communities, starting his first years in Snohomish. Bill’s Uncle Emory lived across the street. His Uncle’s grandfather E.C. Ferguson founded the City of Snohomish in 1859. Uncle Emory taught Bill his grandfathers philosophy “You can’t stop progress, but you can steer it”. Bill’s family moved to Arlington when he was seven, and his dad was PUD manager from Arlington east to Darrington where Bill went on many after hour’s trouble calls with his dad. Bill spent several years living in Everett, and two years living in Marysville.
Bill moved to his 5-acre fishing cabin on the North fork Stillaguamish in 1991 where he and his wife Sarah are raising their family. Bill spent the first half of his life living in the Cities of Snohomish County, and the second half living the rural life style of chopping wood and raising chickens. He will make equitable decisions based on his local experience in both the rural and urban landscape.
