Vote! Palmer City Council Election, Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017

Contributed by Kenni Linden “Psenak”,

The precious days of summer are quickly morphing into the crisp days of autumn. With changing leaves and back-to-school excitement, there is something else to look forward to - the City of Palmer Election!

On Tuesday, October 3, 2017, we have the opportunity to elect two dedicated community members to the Palmer City Council. As a candidate for one of those two open seats, I am excited to share my love and commitment to our city. I am an active volunteer and passionate advocate for our community, and will carry that enthusiasm onto the city council.

This summer has been magical. From drizzly bike rides down to Friday Fling to sunny, Monday night Happy Runs around the Palmer Airport to serendipitously bumping into family members at Colony Days, I love getting out and enjoying our community. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have been born and raised here in Palmer. My husband and I were excited to buy our home within walking distance of downtown and start our family here.

I graduated from Palmer High with an International Baccalaureate Diploma and attended college out of state. After traveling, studying and living internationally, I chose to move home and give back to the community that has given me so much. Palmer has a rich legacy of citizen involvement. In the rocky funding years ahead, I know that we can cultivate innovative and sustainable fiscal solutions to our budget, while also preserving and growing our quality of life.

As our community faces new challenges and embraces our indomitable potential, I look forward to being a fresh perspective on the city council. With your vote, I would be honored to ensure Palmer is the best place to live, play and raise a family.

I’d love to hear from you! Questions? Concerns? You can find me at or on Facebook.
