I want to welcome you to Mukilteo! If you are just moving here from out of the area or nearby, you are living in a community selected several times as the one of the Best Places to Live in America. Mukilteo is a city of nearly 21,000 residents, with award winning schools and a friendly, welcoming charm reminiscent of small communities of another era. We are a community of volunteers who work in the Community Garden growing fresh vegetables for the food bank, play in our Community Orchestra, read Dr. Seuss books to elementary students, organize the annual Egg Hunt for area children, and throw the biggest party of the year, the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival, that is visited over three days by tens of thousands in Lighthouse Park on Puget Sound. Mukilteo is a wonderful place to live, work and play!
ABOUT MAYOR JENNIFER GREGERSON
Jennifer Gregerson is serving her first term as Mayor after having been a member of the City Council since 2004.
Gregerson, a graduate of Kamiak High School, has a Bachelor’s Degree in French from New York University. She has established an expertise in community planning, earning her Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from the University of Washington.
Gregerson established a vision for Mukilteo as a sustainable, well-run city with safe, strong neighborhoods. She believes in the principles of open government and frequent communication with citizens.
Mayor Gregerson learned the values of hard work and responsibility growing up in a family-owned business. Watching her parents fight to preserve trees and wetlands in Harbour Pointe, she says taught her the importance of getting involved, speaking out and defending your community.
Gregerson is the first woman Mayor of Mukilteo, and is committed to encouraging other women to pursue leadership. She hosts a regular Women’s Executive Leadership event with dynamic speakers like Congresswoman Suzan Delbene, is a member of a Taskforce on Women Leaders in Snohomish County, and was selected as the 2015 Woman of the Year by the Greater Everett Business and Professional Women.
Today, she makes her home in Mukilteo, a few miles from where she grew up.
