How you can help with my campaign

To my friends,

Growth is coming to Ferndale. How that growth is managed is the key to the city’s future. Therefore, I am running for the Ferndale City Council Position 7 and I need your help. My election and term in office needs to be a partnership with you, my fellow Ferndale residents. We need to work together as Ferndale moves ahead.

So, how can you help? First and foremost is communication with each other. I have set up an email address for this purpose and it is: I need to know what issues are important to you and if elected, how I can serve you. I also want to be a source for you if you have questions on issues as well.

There are a few other ways you can help. They are:
1. By writing a Letter to the Editor of either the Bellingham Herald or the Ferndale Record Journal.
2. By putting a yard sign up in your yard.
3. By going door to door or talking with your neighbors. I have a hand out that can be used.
4. By attending the Candidate Debate on October 13th at Central Elementary School.
5. By helping financially. To put on a campaign here in Ferndale costs about $1500. (Checks can be made out to Brent Goodrich and mailed to the address below.)
6. By voting. Ballots need to be put into the mail by November 2nd. (Just to let you know, postmarks are not done here in Ferndale. All our mail goes to Everett where it is postmarked.)

Above is a copy of the mailer that will be going out soon. It gives you a brief description of what I support and my background. If you click on it you will get a larger image.

If you would like to help or have any questions I can be reached at:
Brent Goodrich
5666 Correll Dr. #106
Ferndale, WA 98248

Thank you for taking the time to read through this and I look forward to our partnership in Ferndale’s future.

  1. Recently the Library Committee chose an out-of-town architect for the new Ferndale Library. They had used a local architect for preliminary design work, and everyone I have talked to says the local architect did a very good job. I am outraged by my tax dollars being used to support out-of-town businesses when there are very qualified local providers. I will not support a library bond because of this. A few years ago the City of Ferndale hired out-of-town for the new police station. Again, inexcusable. Gary Jensen claimed as a part of his election platform that no more work would go out of town. He is not living up to this promise. Because of my business relationship with the City I must remain anonymous, I am sure you understand. Please take the "Be Local, Buy Local" message to the public, and let everyone know that supporting out-of-town businesses is bad business for local business. Thank you.


I look forward to comments. I have recently learned that comments come to me as anonymous. Therefore, please sign your comments unless you really want to be anonymous. Let's keep the discussions on topic. Thanks...
