Mayor Dean draws capacity crowd

Anacortes Chamber of Commerce Director Stephanie Hamilton characterized Mayor Dean Maxwell as a “rock star” at Thursday’s Chamber luncheon. “He’s like the Ted Nugent of Anacortes,” said Hamilton, who noted that the mayor always attracts a capacity crowd. Maxwell’s annual “state of the city” report acknowledged on several occasions the difficulties of operating a municipal government in a lousy economy. Among those he lauded, however, were dedicated city staffers, council members … and citizen volunteers who save the city a great deal of money. The mayor referenced a Sister Cities trip to Russia, where he was again reminded: “I live in the best small community in America.” Full remarks from the mayor’s speech are posted at cityofanacortes.org

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
