I had the pleasure of first meeting Jessica Merizan while serving on the Tolt Visioning Committee, and from our initial encounter, it was clear to me that she possesses an extraordinary talent for bringing together diverse ideas and transforming them into a focused vision. Jessica’s natural ability to foster collaboration and inclusivity is truly impressive and sets her apart as a remarkable leader.

One of the aspects that truly resonates with me about Jessica is our shared core value: sustainability. We both recognize the importance of nurturing a close-knit community and are committed to preserving our town’s assets, history, and natural resources, all while placing a strong emphasis on climate consciousness. Having been the proud owner and operator of Sandy’s Espresso for over 31 years, I believe that Jessica’s leadership would have a positive impact on my business. I have full confidence that she will wholeheartedly advocate for the needs of the business community, ensuring that our interests are taken into consideration when contemplating future development.

It is with utmost conviction that I endorse Jessica Merizan for Carnation City Council. Her dedication to fostering collaboration, her commitment to sustainability, and her unwavering support for the business community make her an ideal candidate for this important role. I urge you to join me in supporting Jessica as we work together to shape a brighter future for our city.

Sincerely,
Sandy GriffinOwner, Sandy’s Espresso

“I first met Jessica after a city council meeting [in 2018]. I then had the opportunity to work with her on the Carnation Cities Park Board, while being mayor and again when she volunteered to be part of the 2022 Carnation 4th of July Committee. I find Jessica’s enthusiasm, passion,creativity as well as her follow through very refreshing. I feel Jessica will bring this all to council along with a fresh look at the city. Jessica has the energy and knowledge to be a great coucilmember. I am proud to endorse Jessica for City Council position #5.”

Kim Lisk (Previously City of Carnation Mayor/Councilmember and past Chairperson of the Carnation 4th of July Committee)

“Jessica serves selflessly. She is a young mother, who sees our community in a completely different way. Living in a multi generational family, and needing to navigate our streets and parks with a stroller, bringing a unique perspective.  I cannot believe that she is working full-time, giving her time to the parks and planning board, the 4th of July committee , and put on the entire pride event here in Carnation. She would be a valuable resource to have on City Council.”
