Edmonds WA, May 5, 2015
Neil Tibbott, a 3 1/2 year member of the Edmonds Planning Board, is stepping up to run for the Edmonds City Council position #7, currently held by Lora Petso. “My work on the Planning Board and Transportation Committee gives me a solid foundation for working with communities, Staff, Mayor and Council members on the critical issues of transportation and land use” Tibbott explains. “I recognize that for a city to “work” now and in the future, it must also “work” for the neighborhoods. They are the building blocks of any city,” he believes.
Neil Tibbott’s background is in organizing and developing non profit. He has worked in over 2 dozen cities around the Puget Sound region studying demographics, population trends and historic patterns. He holds advance degrees in Urban Studies and is an advocate for citizen participation in city government.
Neil and his wife Margaret have lived in Edmonds for over 15 years in the Seaview neighborhood. Margaret teaches with the Edmonds School District. Together they have 4 children, 3 at Meadowdale High School and have been active in youth sports and city recreation for many years. “We have enjoyed the benefits of raising our children in Edmonds and want to be sure our City stays livable for current and future residents,” explained Tibbott
