What people are saying about Seth Fleetwood

“Mayor Seth has led us through the past 4 years with calm and strong leadership. The pandemic hit us hard and he stood up and took some unpopular positions and we are now better off for it. We need Mayor Seth for four more years.”

Gene Knutson, Former City Council Member

“Bellingham is a challenging and diverse community with an array of disparate needs. Under Seth’s leadership we are able to address a vast number of our community’s concerns and make it a thriving awesome place to live, work and recreate.”

Paul Orlowski

“Seth Fleetwood has led Bellingham through what will likely be seen in retrospect as its darkest hours. I am grateful for his calm, thoughtful, even-handed approach to leadership. Never a grandstander, Seth has intelligently dealt with trying circumstances with quiet and competent aplomb. I admire his adherence to good process. I support him in a second term.”

Peter Frazier

“Mayor Fleetwood has been capable, honest and direct as Bellingham’s civic leader. He shows respect and compassion toward everyone he encounters. During his time as mayor he has met local crises (crime, homelessness, infrastructure costs) by creating consensus, then following through with firm leadership and direction. Bellingham could not ask for a more experienced and visionary mayor than Seth Fleetwood.”

Sam Crawford, Former County Council Member

“Seth has a record of listening to his constituents, even in hard circumstances, and of good governance. He is a good man and good for our city.”

Barbara Gilday, Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

“For decades, we have seen Seth lead our community in big and small ways, accomplishing important goals, without ever making it about him. We want Seth’s steady and sound leadership as our mayor to continue. Re-elect Seth Fleetwood!”

Jeff and Carol Arvin

“Seth has navigated national issues such as the pandemic and homelessness as well as any mayor that I know of. It was an impossible task for which he’s done an admirable job.”

Harvey Schwartz

“Mayor Seth has been a steady, thoughtful and collaborative partner throughout these challenging and complex times. City and County relations have never been better. I have come to rely on his good judgement and endorse him enthusiastically.”

Satpal Sidhu, Whatcom County Executive

“We have a rare chance to carefully shape our future in land use, more housing, and economic health when we update our Comprehensive Plan as mandated in 2024 by the State. So much is at stake! Seth Fleetwood’s practical experience in  guiding this process is a key reason to re-elect him as Mayor. I urge you to join me in voting for Seth, his vision and  strong leadership.”

Tim Douglas, former Bellingham Mayor

“Seth is a visionary.”

Betsy Gross

“I want someone at the helm with experience and expertise as we update the City’s
Comprehensive Plan. Seth has a lot of both and more.”
