Economic Vitality

During the worst of the last recession, we watched as cities across the country struggled to pay their bills, balance their budgets, and keep vital programs running. Businesses and families alike left many of these cities in search of economic growth and stability. Millions of people lost their jobs, businesses closed their doors, and new developments slowed to a crawl. Weekly news reports keep us updated on the latest facts and figures from the federal government, and we see the slow pace of global recovery.

But even during the worst of the recession, Bellevue saw new businesses, construction, and an unemployment rate consistently lower than the national average. Unlike many politicians who claim that what’s good for people is bad for business, Mayor Lee believes that the interests of companies and the community are actually the same. We all want a prosperous community with long-term stability and sustainable growth.

Bellevue remains a model of government responsibility and accountability. During Conrad Lee’s tenure on City Council, many companies of all sizes have seen incredible growth, creating thousands of new jobs and opportunities. Conrad has always been a firm believer in the idea that government should be a partner of people and business, as this is the best way to ensure that Bellevue remains a beacon for economic robustness.

In a time when even the federal government has lost its stellar reputation, the City of Bellevue has earned another perfect AAA rating from Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s. This illustrates that Conrad’s responsible policies truly pay off when it comes to creating a great city.

Conrad needs your support to keep our city growing, and you can help him out by donating $50, $25, $10, or any amount now!

This November, vote Conrad Lee for City Council to keep Bellevue on the path of economic prosperity.
