Ken Klein comes from a pioneer family who settled in Arlington and the surrounding area as dairy farmers in the late 1800’s.  Ken spent all his life here as have his parents, well-known figures at Safeway and the Arlington School District.  Upon graduation from high school, Ken went on to WWU and received his degree in Business/Finance and is employed as a manager at a large food service company.

In addition, Ken has served on the Arlington Planning Commission and currently serves as the Vice Chair for the Snohomish County Planning Commission which is instrumental in balancing the needs and desires of residents with the most satisfactory use of the lands over which the County has jurisdiction.  It takes a patient, thoughtful person to juggle the needs of developers against environmentalists, of residents who value the “rural” lifestyle against those who want more urban amenities closer to their homes.  Ken is the kind of person, while not being able to satisfy everybody all the time, is able to calmly explain the issue at hand and the pieces of law, local, state and federal which may be impacting the planning commission’s decisions.

Upon graduation he chose Arlington as his home, knowing how much it meant to him to grow up in Arlington, to his family to remain nearby and then upon his marriage, to raise his own children in the same environment he had benefited so much from as a child.

Ken is a straight talker who has no personal agenda other than to be of service to his community.  He is dependable and knowledgeable about not just how Arlington needs to move forward prosperously but how Arlington fits into a larger Snohomish County.

Please vote for Ken Klein for Arlington City Council.
