Campaign Chair: Mayor Jon Nehring
“Strong communities happen when each of us makes the decision to get active and involved. If you LIVE UNITED—if you GIVE, ADVOCATE and VOLUNTEER—you are helping to build communities that care for each other,” says Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, United Way of Snohomish County’s 2013 Campaign Chair.
Mayor Nehring is a Snohomish County leader with deep, local roots. He earned his associate’s degree from Everett Community College and a bachelor’s in business administration through Central Washington University. With 17 years of private sector business experience, he brings a set of leadership skills and style that seeks solutions, and values collaboration. He understands that teamwork matters, having coached local youth sports programs, including Marysville Little League.
This year’s campaign theme is STRENGTH IN COMMUNITY. The idea naturally evolved from discussion with other United Way volunteers. “It just feels right. There is STRENGTH IN COMMUNITY when you work with United Way—and we have big work to do together”, adds Mayor Nehring. He intends to build on the campaign growth achieved in 2012, so look for some great new ideas on how to get involved this year.
“I appreciate that United Way focuses on the urgent and also understands that we need to be working toward long-term solutions to the issues that challenge our communities.” Mayor Nehring believes each of us has something to contribute. So, flex your giving muscle and get involved in the 2013 campaign.
