Shoreline, Wash. (April 18, 2009) Christopher Roberts, Obama Captain for the 32nd Legislative District during the 2008 election, filed Friday, April 17, 2009, to run for Shoreline City Council.

“President Obama has asked all Americans to start shaping our country’s future, and that through service to our communities and our neighborhoods, we will build a stronger nation,” said Roberts. “In this campaign, I answer this call to service – and together, we will work toward a stronger, more sustainable, future for the City of Shoreline.”

Roberts plans his campaign around three messages: strengthening civic engagement and participation in the Shoreline community, increasing transparency in Shoreline’s city governance, and encouraging small business development in Shoreline.

“The local Obama community strongly supports Christopher Roberts,” says local Obama captain Katie Rohs. “Throughout the 2008 campaign, he demonstrated his selfless commitment to the Shoreline community, and has encouraged others to follow Obama’s call to service.”

“Christopher is the right person for Shoreline,” says 32nd District Democrats Vice Chair Maryn Wynne. “His tireless dedication to the Democratic Party, and service on the Washington State Democratic Central Committee means that once he is on the City Council, bright things will happen for Shoreline.”

Roberts, 30, is a Comparative Law and Societies Scholar working on his dissertation in the Political Science Department at the University of Washington, and is a member of the City of Shoreline’s Human Services Strategy Task Force. His wife, Heather, is an Associate Faculty at Cascadia Community College.
