     Re-Elect Wendy Weiker

for Mercer Island City Council 

"This is an exciting and challenging time for our community.  We're investing in our parks, people, and public infrastructure while planning and preparing for Mercer Island's future. I want to keep working with Islanders to keep our community safe, welcoming, accessible, and vibrant for all Islanders and our visitors as we rebuild from the pandemic.  

Wendy Weiker, 2023

Community Matters

We are so fortunate to live in the Puget Sound region and call Mercer Island home. This is a proud community with excellent schools, safe neighborhoods, beautiful parks and beaches, engaged citizens, close proximity to both Seattle and the Eastside, and a resilient town center preparing for light rail service.  If re-elected to the City Council, I will continue to be thoughtful and deliberate in balancing Mercer Island's unique community characteristics with the regional challenges and opportunities headed our way to ensure that Islanders continue to have the great quality of life we so enjoy.  


My top priorities for the Council in the coming years are the same as they've been since I took office in 2016:

 Public Safety and Solid Infrastructure
  • Provide safe roads, sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike paths

  • Support our city's first responders, mental health counselors, & emergency preparedness systems

  • Advocate to keep our schools, public spaces, and community safe from gun violence

  • Ensure the integrity & reliability of our public utilities

  • Maintain and enhance our parks, trails, beaches and open spaces

Support Our Town Center & Focus Growth in the North End Near Transit
  • Champion a vibrant, accessible, connected downtown where our business community can thrive

  • Encourage public outreach and community input on commercial development, open space, & transportation system projects in the town center

  • Plan for new family housing units in our town center near transit, not in single family neighborhoods

  • Advocate for safe, efficient access to light rail services and infrastructure when the MI Sound Transit station opens in 2024-2025

Dollar Bills
Budget Transparency and Accountability
  • Communicate city's financial challenges (expenses exceeding revenue) to citizens and seek community engagement to determine priorities of government

  • Support transparency on parks levy project plan, implementation timeline, and reporting

  • Solicit public input on possible alternative service delivery models where they are possible and cost effective


MI Strong & Strong Regional Representation
  • Advocate for Mercer Island resident, business, school, and community interests on and off Island

  • Champion Mercer Island in regional planning forums, gatherings, and meetings
