Foley declares candidacy for Poulsbo City Council
POULSBO — Poulsbo resident Tom Foley has his sights set on Poulsbo City Council Position 7. Foley announced his candidacy for the position, currently occupied by Kim Crowder.
Foley is a 17-year resident of the city and regularly attends city council meetings.
A retired Naval officer and a Licensed Merchant Marine chief engineer, he is currently employed as a ship surveyor with the federal government. He has been married to Cynthia Foley for 35 years, and together they have raised three children, all of which have graduated from North Kitsap High School.
“During these times of declining revenue, the city needs to become more fiscally conservative; stop spending money on costly consultants, utilize the expertise of the city employees,” Foley stated in a press release. “We need to utilize what resources we have more economically; the oversized new city hall needs to be home to all of our city departments including the police department. “
He also said the city should focus on helping local busines through the tough economic times by listening to business owners and providing more assistance.
“Finally, we need to put more emphasis toward the repairs and modernization of the city infrastructures, such as the sewage, water systems and building sidewalks,” his press release states.
