"Eslick, however, has been able to draw on a decade of past leadership as Sultan’s mayor, including a crucial role on a coalition to win funding for safety improvements on U.S. 2.
Eslick had some success in her first session this year; winning passage of a bill for which she was a primary sponsor that requires the state Department of Fish and Wildlife to hold meetings in affected communities before the agency relocates big game animals, including wolves, coyotes and bobcats. Another bill she sponsored, but which did not advance, would have required the state fire marshal to consider policies that would reduce fire deaths at rental properties. Eslick was secondary sponsor on successful bills to provide foster parent training and impose a civil infraction on those falsely claiming a pet as a service animal.
In her appointment to the position, 12 of the 17 county council members supported Eslick, including all five from Snohomish County’s council. Eslick’s first session shows that confidence was well placed. Voters can have the same confidence in supporting Eslick."
