Redmond resident Andrew Koeppen is seeking to run for mayor.

Koeppen is a long-time resident, a local real estate agent and business owner. According to a press release announcing his running for mayor, he has been involved in the community by participating in Redmond’s homeless commission, serving as chair of public safety advisory board and leading community preparedness events.

“As someone whose life is defined by change, I know that to manage change effectively, one needs to listen,” said Koeppen in the release. “So even before starting my campaign for mayor last November, I’ve been listening to my neighbors. I’ve been hearing that the people of Redmond are yearning for a City Council that will actually hear them and take their concerns seriously.”

According to the release, Koeppen believes Redmond needs a city government in which ethics is ingrained into its culture; a city government that doesn’t waste taxpayer’s money and a mayor who is free from partisanship.

“As the year progresses, and because I care deeply about everyone who lives in Redmond, I look forward to meeting with as many people as possible and earning the vote of Redmond citizens,” said Koeppen in the release.

Koeppen was born in Australia and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His wife and three kids moved to Redmond in 2000. The Koeppens had their fourth child in Redmond.
