Robert Low, San Juan County Fire Marshall, his announced he is in the race to be the next Mayor of Friday Harbor. His press release follows: I’m running for Mayor because I love this community. Since age 5, I have been coming to the Town of Friday Harbor on vacations and holidays at my grandparents home. I have watched the town change from a sleepy fishing village to the community we see today.
I have been a full time resident of San Juan Island for over 20 years and have been a resident of Friday Harbor for 13 years.
I believe that it is my duty as a citizen of our community to serve and help make this a better place to live. I have served the community as Town of Friday Harbor volunteer firefighter and have served as its Fire Chief.
I am an elected member of the board of directors of the Inter Island Medical Center and currently volunteer as an EMT with San Juan EMS.
I am currently employed as San Juan County Fire Marshal. I am also currently President of the Chiefs Association and President of the Region Three Task Force.
I know that I have the skills needed to lead the Town through many tough decisions that need to be made and at the same time bring in fresh ideas to make our town a better place to live.
