Stober seeks reelection to Vancouver City Council

first_imgTy Stober is seeking a second term on the Vancouver City Council, he announced Tuesday.“The issues facing Vancouver are nuanced and complex,” Stober said in a media release. “And in my decision-making, I try hard to hear and represent the voices in our community that feel left out and left behind.”His announcement was expected — Stober had filed with the Public Disclosure Commission for the 2019 election in April 2016, and his campaign has since raised about $9,400.Before sitting on the city council, Stober cut his teeth running for the 49th District state Senate seat vacated by Democrat Craig Pridemore in 2012. An LGBTQ equal-rights advocate, Stober dropped out of that race to concentrate on the battle to defend the state’s marriage equality law, he told The Columbian at the time.He also worked at the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, where he encouraged electronics retailers to stock and promote their most energy-efficient products.In 2015, he narrowly won a city council bid for the Position 5 seat over Linda Glover (who went on to win her own council election in 2017). Over the past four years, he’s served on city committees including the Council for the Homeless, C-Tran and Safe Communities Task Force.If elected to a second term, Stober pledged to focus on affordable housing and transportation.“My time on (the) council has been rewarding,” Stober said in the media release.”We have launched many projects and initiatives to strengthen our community, and I want to see them come to fruition. I am eager to continue building economic and social opportunity that connects our youth, our aging population and our families to a growing, vibrant city.”last_img read more
