While we can always massively improve voter turnout, we're glad that this run for office improved participation in any way!
Bellingham City Council, At-Large, General Election Voter Turnout
2017: 24,044 (so far)
2015: 15,096 (Rox ran unopposed)...
2013: 21,878 (Rox's first Bellingham run)
People continue to worry about what the opponent is saying about me. Yes, right before the General Election, I received a notice from the Public Disclosure Commission that the opponent filed a complaint that I defamed him through this Facebook page. I opted to respond to that swiftly, even though the response wasn’t due until Nov. 13. To put it simply, I argued in a thoughtful way that there was no violation and if this is defamation, the opponent defamed himself. I will see how the PDC responds, but I’m really not worried about it. The opponent lost, miserably. Ignore him and let’s move on!
We won! Eternal thanks go to everyone who supported this campaign. Love prevailed, and Roxanne will continue to do whatever she can to protect our values and our community. Thank you so much, City of Bellingham!
Hope you’re ready to hit refresh to get to the results. Fingers and toes are crossed that we’ll all be able to celebrate! Thank you to everyone who supported retaining Roxanne on the Bellingham City Council!
The opponent is suggesting that Roxanne stole his yard signs. She works full time, serves as your Bellingham City Councilmember, At-Large, and is managing this campaign. There's no time for anything like this. She also respects people's right to run for office, which she has said again and again throughout this campaign. The only thing she hopes to steal is a killer election night tomorrow! RoxTheVote!
Hey! It’s Roxanne here! Many are kindly expressing concern for me as they continue to see Facebook ads from the opponent’s campaign that are attempts to hurt me. Let me just say that he’s obviously not the first person who has tried so steadfastly to oppress me as a female and a Native. This is also why I hope more women and diverse people will run for office! Resilience is what we know best! And, when most people see these ads, it has generally prompted more to vote to re-elect me. I’m just praying to the Ancestors that justice will prevail on Nov. 7. #RoxTheVote!
So many in Bellingham value conservation, recreation and education. Rox earned the sole endorsement of the Washington Conservation Voters and the Sierra Club; she is an avid athlete via hiking, skiing, yoga and cycling 100 miles in a day (twice); and she earned a master's degree in public administration from The Evergreen State College. Even better, she is completing her third year without a drop of alcohol or any substance. Strong person and leader, clear thinking, healthy values and your Bellingham candidate. #RoxTheVote by Nov. 7!
The deadline to vote is quickly approaching! The easiest way to submit your ballot is through the drop boxes, which will be available until 8 p.m. on Nov. 7. Please vote down your whole ballot and remember to get your ballot in by Nov. 7!
Rox started out in life as a foster kid, and since her adoptive family has passed, she still considers herself to be a proud Ward of Washington State. That's just one more reason why she loves the relationship with the Bellingham community. The votes and support from this greater Bellingham family will help Rox prove again and again that at-risk youth can be just as successful as anyone else. #RoxTheVote by Nov. 7!
Rox is still winning in fundraising, endorsements, campaign work and great community support. She also outperformed her opponent during the candidate forums. Now, we just hope that you'll join the party in voting to Retain Roxanne by Nov. 7!
Qualifications mean so much when you’re applying for a job and this race for the job of serving as the Bellingham City Councilmember, At-Large, is no different. Please select the most qualified candidate, by far, and RoxTheVote by Nov. 7!
