Mayor is ‘diamond of Little Norway’

It was an honor to serve as Miss Poulsbo during Mayor Becky Erickson’s first year as mayor in 2010. I enjoyed getting to see her at many events around town, including the Easter egg hunt at Raab Park and the grand opening of City Hall.

Mayor Erickson has put a lot of work into making Poulsbo a great town. I’m proud of her and congratulate her for receiving Person of the Year at the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce President’s Gala, Jan. 26.

I will always remember how she always made me feel welcome and a part of this wonderful community that we call home.

I fondly remember the first time I met the mayor. I was so thrilled; we were at the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce President’s Gala.

Admittedly, I was a little star-struck meeting the mayor of the town I was crowned to represent. I recall being impressed with how genuine and down to earth her presence was, influencing me to design the choices and actions I would make as Miss Poulsbo.

I cherish deeply everything — from ribbon-cutting ceremonies in the rain, the key to the city ceremony at city hall, to the conversations we shared. I honor our friendship and am ecstatic to congratulate her for being recognized as Person of the Year. It is much deserved.

Keep lighting the way, Becky. You are the diamond of Little Norway, our Poulsbo.

I would like to offer my congratulations to Mayor Becky Erickson on being named Person of the Year. I feel she deserves this very special honor, as I had the privilege of knowing her during my reign as Miss Poulsbo 2012.

I know her to be dedicated to this community and always working hard to make Poulsbo and the surrounding areas a better place for all of us. I have very fond memories of times with her and one of my most memorable experiences was when I received the key to the city.

Mayor Erickson has always been a source of inspiration to me and I’ve enjoyed the times that we had together promoting this great community of ours. Best wishes always to a great leader and a wonderful friend.

Congratulations to our mayor, Becky Erickson, for being named Person of the Year at the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce President’s Gala.

Although I have only held my title for a short amount of time, I have already experienced countless examples of Becky’s dedication and commitment to our town of Poulsbo. With her dedication, time and passion, the city of Poulsbo has already become a better place and will with no doubt continue to grow in the right direction.

Thank you, Becky Erickson, for all the things you do for the city of Poulsbo! Your time and dedication mean so much to all of us.
