The Gerly Adrien for Mayor campaign has brought on Kate Burnett to be the campaign manager of the effort, having started about two weeks ago.
Burnett said she left a stable job to run the campaign and is ready to help Councilor Adrien win in September and November.
“To be honest, I was a little nervous on my first day,” she said. “I left a stable job during a pandemic to help run a campaign. Not just any campaign, but one that’s going up against a mayor that has been in office for 12 years. But I saw a chance to create a better Everett for all with Gerly as mayor and knew I wanted to help.”
Burnett helped to coordinate a virtual fundraiser last Sunday, May 23, with a $35 suggested donation. However, she said the “movement” is powered by small donations, so any contribution was appreciated.
