Experienced Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
LEAN GOVERNMENT; QUALITY ROADS; CITIZEN SAFETY; JOB GROWTH
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Rasmussen and I am running for the City of Spokane Valley council. I have nearly a decade of hands-on experience with the city and I am excited to continue my involvement in a different capacity; one where my experience matters to keep us moving forward.
I worked for the City from 2008 to 2015. My duties included the lean development and management of three departmental budgets. In addition, I was tasked with creating our Six-Year Business Plan into a working document. This document describes each department’s internal plan and is the tool used to formulate the budget to meet that plan. It also looks back in review and provides performance related outcomes; a score card on how well the city performed.
After leaving city employment, I wanted to stay involved with the city I love and was appointed in 2016 to become a Planning Commissioner. I was the Chair in 2018 and am now completing my third year as a commissioner. This experience has been valuable in adding to my understanding of city related matters.
I am asking for your vote and support in the upcoming election. My goal is to keep us moving forward with lean government, quality roads and transportation infrastructure, citizen safety and job growth. Our city truly is a great place to live, work and play and I will work to keep it moving that direction.
I look forward to representing you as a councilmember and, if you have any questions, please email me at
