Mayor Gere's Statement:
In 2020, we faced a public health and economic crisis. Our community, like many communities in Washington, and across the world have changed the way we go to work, do business, and live our lives. The City is committed to the health of its citizens and will focus on economic recovery efforts in 2021. The work we do at the City is the foundation that supports the quality of life that residents experience every day.
The City is served by a dedicated, community-focused City Council and staff whose experiences and commitment help make Anacortes a unique and dynamic city. The City is actively working on projects and programs that contribute toward the City’s betterment. This virtual State of the City event will celebrate the City’s strengths and elaborate on the innovative programs and projects that contribute to our quality of life. In 2021, the City will continue its commitment to building a sustainable, vibrant, and inclusive community.
