Hello Fellow Leavenworth Residents,
My name is Anne Hessburg and I am running for Leavenworth City Council, position #4 in the 2009 General Election on November 3, and I would love your vote!
As citizens and residents of this community, we are aware of Leavenworth’s status as leading small town community in WA state, offering “award-winning schools, thriving businesses, great family neighborhoods, and a large arts community.”
As 20 year resident of the greater Wenatchee Valley and a 5 year member of the Leavenworth community, I have enjoyed watching and learning how our city functions; balancing the many diverse needs of residents, business owners, tourism operators, agriculturalists, and outdoor enthusiasts all within the backdrop of our beautiful mountain setting and apropos Bavarian theme.
I have a great respect for the work of those who have built this town into the success that it is today. Leavenworth owes much of its present success and economic health to the vision of the original LIFE committee; the Bavarian theme and associated tourism revenues.
Today as at the founding of the original LIFE committee, this community strives to balance the needs of its residents with the development of its tourism and recreation based economy, all within the backdrop of our quintessential Bavarian theme.
My vision to contribute to Leavenworth’s continued and future success is based in community wide, cooperation involving the many generations of individuals who call this area home. We must not abandon the proven successes of the past, nor should we turn a blind eye to positive changes that pave the road to our continued progress.
On November 3, 2009, I ask for your vote. I promise that I will work tirelessly for the benefit of this community and strive to balance the varying needs of this community. It is my passion to become a stronger, more involved member of this community as it continues to grow and flourish, and feel that my presence on the Leavenworth City Council will accurately and diligently represent all those who call our valley “home.”
Anne Marie Hessburg
