Reagan Dunn

Dunn is a good fit for his once rural and now increasingly suburban district. Serving as vice chair of the Council, chair of the Local Services Committee and vice-chair of the Green River Flood Control District put Dunn in key positions to work on issues important to the communities he represents. Dunn believes in regional cooperation, and his work on the council has earned him coveted endorsements from the mayors of Bellevue, Black Diamond, Covington, Enumclaw, Kent, Maple Valley and Renton.

Kathy Lambert

If anyone in local government deserves the nickname, “Hardest Working Elected Official,” it is King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert. After serving in the Washington State House and Senate, Kathy joined the King County Council, where she has a demonstrated a deep passion for the people and communities she represents.   Kathy represents Council District 3, which stretches from Redmond, Skykomish, Woodinville, Carnation, and Duvall in the north, all the way to Issaquah, Sammamish, and North Bend along the I-90 corridor. Serving a district of nearly 1,000 square miles requires boundless energy, a good listening ear, and an ability to think on the fly.

Conrad Lee

The Eastside Business Alliance is pleased to announce its early endorsement of Conrad Lee for reelection to the Bellevue City Council.   Councilmember Lee has been breaking down barriers for years. As Bellevue’s first Chinese American councilmember, he has continuously worked to represent our diverse community. Conrad was a lead advocate in the design, funding, and construction of the city’s multicultural center. Throughout his time on the Council, Conrad has become a pillar of the Bellevue community and is a consistent voice for fiscal responsibility and economic growth. Councilmember Lee earned his reputation as a fiscal hawk during the Great Recession and has continued to fight against harmful tax hikes while promoting sound policies that prioritize and protect essential city functions. As a member of the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Economic Development Board, Conrad plays a critical role in Bellevue’s growing influence throughout the region.

Lynne Robinson

The Eastside Business Alliance is proud to endorse Mayor Lynne Robinson’s re-election to the Bellevue City Council. In her first decision as mayor, Lynne Robinson demonstrated her balanced and inclusive approach to leadership by supporting Jared Nieuwenhuis as her deputy mayor. Since then, Lynne has successfully guided Bellevue through an unprecedented year of challenges. From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Robinson met public safety and economic concerns head on. After the property destruction and looting in May 2020, Mayor Robinson led the Council in launching a transparent use of force review with the support and cooperation of Bellevue’s celebrated police chief, Steve Mylett. During subsequent threats to public safety, Mayor Robinson has supported the Chief’s strategy of preserving first amendment rights while deescalating dangerous situations.
