State Rep. candidate Gerly Adrien announced that she is officially on the ballot as a candidate for state representative on the Democratic ballot for the primary, which is to be held on Tuesday, September 4.
Adrien was the first candidate to turn in her signatures and get on the ballot, she said.
“I am proud of the support I have received so far I went door to door and around Everett events to obtain her signatures,” she said. “It was important for me to personally ask people to support me this time again.”
Adrien’s first priority as a candidate is to listen to and represent the concerns of Everett residents. During the past few weeks Adrien knocked on 500 doors, where she heard several major themes: residents are concerned about their water bills, the increase in their property taxes, and how the schools are performing.
To continue this conversation, Adrien is launching a Listening Tour of Everett so that more residents can tell her directly what is on their mind.
Gerly invites you to join her at one of the stops on her upcoming Listening Tour (refreshments will be served).

In 2016, Gerly Adrien ran for State Representative as a first-time candidate with zero name recognition. She fell short by 600 votes against an incumbent who was well known in Everett. She said believes Everett is ready for new leadership and a leader who will take action.
“We cannot wait for others to act,” she said. “The people of Everett need a strong voice now, and someone who will fight for the issues that matter most. After four years of stagnant non-leadership, we cannot wait any longer. That is why I am running again.”
