Bellevue City Council Position 2
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 is a lead advocate for the future construction of a city multicultural center and secured $200,000 in the budget to make this plan a reality.
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.
As a champion for technology investments, especially in the transportation sector, Conrad understands the important role the tech industry plays in the future growth of the City. He has led several efforts to support tech sector employment while preserving Bellevue as an inclusive and welcoming community.
Four years ago, in response to his endorsement, Councilmember Lee stated, “We can never take continued economic growth for granted. I’ll work hard to make certain Bellevue remains open for business.” We agree and strongly support his continued service to the people of Bellevue.
