"Official Press Release"

Official Press Release from Kyle Christensen. I want to publicly announce my intention to run for State Representative of the 42nd District, Position #2 (vacated by Sharon Shewmake).
After much thought, counsel, and prayer, I have decided to run for State Representative. As I start this journey, I am excited and encouraged by the overwhelming support from my family, friends, and community. I am passionate about helping people and look forward to continuing to serve the people of Whatcom County.
I have had the privilege of serving as the Mayor of Sumas over the last four years. Our citizens and businesses have been severely impacted by the three floods and the impacts of Covid-19 during that time. I have done everything I can to help provide leadership, support, and encouragement during these difficult times we have faced together. I have seen so many volunteers, organizations, businesses, first responders, and City staff go above and beyond the call of duty, time and time again. Some even risked their own lives doing emergency rescues and evacuations during the peak of the flood. As my term as Mayor expires in just a few weeks, I am filled with emotions as I step away from my current role. I have been able to be a small part of something special. Our community has bonded together, stayed strong, and helped each other during every crisis that has come our way. Like many of you, I have experienced sorrow, grief, and anxiety as I have comforted people breaking down and crying because of the devastation that has happened to them. I have also experienced a lot of joy, gratitude, and thankfulness. There are so many good memories and accomplishments that we have achieved together.
There is a lot of work that still needs to be done. As your next State Representative, I want to continue to work hard for everyone in Whatcom County. I won't just work for you; I will work with you. Would you please consider donating or volunteering to help my campaign? Let's make a difference together!

Thank you for your support. I look forward to serving you.
