Hi! Thank you for taking time to visit my website. My name is Peter Condyles and I was raised right here in Marysville.
I am currently the President of the Marysville Historical Society, a group I have been on the board of since 2014. Through my time with the historical society, I have gotten a broader understanding of where Marysville has been, which better informs decisions about where Marysville should go. The slogan "Honoring the past-Planning for the future" is inspired by this and is how I would like my time on council to be defined. Marysville has a special history, and we need to make sure that history is preserved and honored for our next generation.
My family chose to move to Marysville in 2004 when I was 6 years old, and it is a decision that we have not once regretted. Marysville was such an amazing community to grow up in, and like many of you I have fond childhood memories that are uniquely Marysville. After graduating from high school, I attended Western Washington University, and spent time in Washington D.C. While away from Marysville, I developed an even deeper appreciation for our special corner of the world, and after graduating made the decision to come back. I am now proud to live back in the place I consider my hometown working to make it the best place it can be. To that end, I joined Mayor Nehring's Task Force on Growth in 2020 to help city leaders look long-term at how Marysville can and should grow. I was also appointed the Chair of the Snohomish County Policy Advisory Board, which make recommendations to the County Council regarding funding for housing and homelessness. These two experiences gave me first-hand knowledge on how local government works, and made me excited to be a part of the process. In addition to this, I work for a land use consulting firm in Lake Stevens.
In July of 2022, I was honored to be selected to fill a vacancy on the Marysville City Council. Since then, I have been committed to providing good government to our city, and ensuring our citizens receive the services they expect and deserve. In my short time on council we:
Passed a balanced budget that funds essential services and makes vital investments in infrastructure WITHOUT a property tax increase.
Strengthened laws relating to drug crimes in Marysville, which allows our city to prosecute drug offenses, opposed to waiting for the county to prosecute.
Streamlined antiquated police hiring processes allowing Marysville to remain competitive in a difficult environment for hiring police officers.
Lobbied state leaders in Olympia for funding on various projects to help traffic congestion and other infrastructure improvements.
As I am new to city government, I am always open to suggestions or feedback! Feel free to contact me, or if you see me out and about come up and say hi! I love Marysville, and I want to make sure that it remains the special place I grew up in for my family, and yours.
