Reception will honor Treen, Brady

   BOTHELL--Members of the Northshore community are invited to attend a reception honoring former Mayor Debbie Treen and former Deputy Mayor Wendy Brady for their years of service to the city on the Council and advisory boards. Both Treen and Brady resigned in June due to changes in their work responsibilities.

   The reception will be held on Monday, July 12, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Bothell City Hall Council Chambers, 18305 - 101st Ave. NE in downtown Bothell. There will be a brief program honoring the two former councilmembers, and refreshments will be served.

   Treen served the city on the Council from January 1993 until June of this year, serving as mayor since January 1998. She has had a longstanding involvement in land use issues affecting the Snohomish County/north Bothell area, dating back to the mid 1980s. She represented the city on a variety of boards and committees, including the Eastside Transportation Partnership, Translake Washington Study Committee, Snohomish County Tomorrow, and the Northshore School District Downtown Property Task Force. One of the most significant successes involved her work to secure funding from Snohomish County for the acquisition of Thrasher's Corner Regional Park, a 54-acre natural area located at the northern city limits.

   Brady began her involvement in the political life of Bothell eight years ago, as an active member of the Canyon Park Citizens Task Force. She served on the Bothell Planning Commission from 1992 until 1996, when she was elected to the City Council. Brady served on the Council as Deputy Mayor, beginning in January 1998, and on various committees including the Council Transportation Caucus, the Suburban Cities Association, the Bothell Transporation Partnership, and North King/South Snohomish Transportation Committee.

   "The City Council, staff, and citizens will miss the dedicated involvement and contributions of Debbie Treen and Wendy Brady. This reception is our way of thanking both of them for all their time and achievements over the years and wishing them well as their careers take them on to new horizons," City Manager Jim Thompson said.
