Edmonds resident Alicia Crank announced her campaign March 4 for Edmonds City Council, Position 5.

She will be running for the seat held by Dave Teitzel, who is not seeking re-election. She lost to Teitzel in 2015 for the same seat.

Crank will be running against Vivian Olson, who last month announced her intention to seek the Position 5 seat.

“As your councilmember, I will work hard to ensure that all of us who live and work Edmonds home come together for the betterment of everyone,” Crank said in a news release.

“From our teenagers and working-age residents to our senior citizens, renters to homeowners, we can all work together to improve our government transparency, housing affordability, smart growth, economic development and sustainability opportunities.”

Crank, 44, has served on several boards and commissions in and around the city, including the Edmonds Senior Center and Edmonds Sister City Commission.

She is now serving her third year on the Edmonds Planning Board and as vice chair of the Snohomish County (Paine Field) Airport Commission, and was re-instituted in early 2018.

Alicia is a a corporate relations officer for YWCA Seattle.

She said that her job and previous work experiences prepare her “to listen to communities, help to scrutinize the City budget and ensure efficiency in providing services to the community.”

Crank has earned the early support and endorsements of former Councilmember Joan Bloom and Edmonds School District board member Carin Chase, as well as community leaders Denise Miller, Michelle Van Tassel, Susan Paine and Crystal Carlson.
