  • Kelly Von Holtz is running for Tumwater City Council, Position 7. The seat is currently held by Charlie Schneider, who is not seeking re-election. Holtz works in public relations and marketing at Evergreen State College. She sits on the city’s planning commission and previously served on the Parks and Recreation Board Commission.

    Holtz moved to Tumwater as a single, working mother and has since been involved in public service and community engagement. In this race, she is focused on upgrades to public infrastructure, implementing community solutions to the opioid epidemic and substance abuse, addressing the housing crisis, and reducing barriers for marginalized communities to access educational opportunities. She also wants to build more bridges and communication between the council and residents. Holtz has strong endorsements in this race, including from the local Democrats.

    Andrea McGhee is a loan officer at a mortgage company and a first-time candidate in this race. She is running on a sparse platform with a core policy of putting businesses first. McGhee’s definition of public safety does not seem thoughtful nor progressive.

    We recommend Kelly Von Holtz for Position 7 on the Tumwater City Council.
