Welcome to the third county council district’s legislative website! I am honored to work on behalf of my constituents to keep Snohomish County a great place to live, work, and play.
Here you will find contact information for me, my legislative aide, and the very dedicated council department staff. Visitors to this site can also find information on our district, read occasional news links, and sign up for my email newsletter.
I look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions about the county or our district.
Biography of Stephanie Wright
I have had the honor to serve the people of Snohomish County since 2010. I am dedicated to strengthening our communities through economic development and improved public safety, and to working towards a shared vision for development, transportation, and preservation throughout the region.
I currently serve as Chair of the Finance and Economic Development Committee, as well as Chair of the Snohomish County Health District Board. I also serve on the Community Transit Board, Aerospace Task Force, Lodging Tax Advisory Committee, and Conservation Futures Board. Regionally, I serve on the WA State Emergency Management Council and the Central Puget Sound Economic Development District Board. For the Washington State Association of Counties, I serve on the Legislative Steering Committee and as their representative to the Western Interstate Regional Board of Directors. For the National Association of Counties, I am currently Vice Chair of the International Economic Development Task Force, as well as serving on the Community Economic and Workforce Development Steering Committee, Large Urban County Caucus, and Veterans and Military Services Committee.
Born in Everett, I am a life-long resident of Snohomish County with roots in both Marysville and Lynnwood. My husband and I have lived in Lynnwood for almost 20 years and are now raising our wonderful son there. After receiving my Bachelors from Washington State University, I earned a Masters in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University. Prior to serving on the county council, I was a high school teacher at Woodinville High School, a librarian in the Northshore School District, and served on the Lynnwood City Council.
