Denise McCluskey is running for election this November for the University Place City Council position 7. McCluskey has been working with UP City government for over seven years, giving up her nights and weekends as a volunteer.
“There is only so much you can do as a volunteer, so I am ready to serve the community from a position where I can really make their voices heard” says McCluskey.
Her role on the Parks and Recreation Commission, Chair of Citizen Advisory Task Force, and now on the Planning Commission have given her a broad base of experience working with different aspects of the City government.
According to McCluskey, key issues in her campaign will be: improve the public processes, improve the public notification processes which would enhance the public trust and improve UP’s fiscal accountability. University Place has had substantial growth. It is time to transition towards a steady state that provides reflective and responsible planning to ensure economic stability of all city services and business enterprises while sustaining UPs natural beauty in a supportive infrastructure to the benefit of the entire community.
Long before University Place even became a city, McCluskey began her 17 years of volunteer work with both the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. Denise has shown real leadership in her support of Scouts, including integrating Scout projects with City projects. It has enriched the city and given the youth citizens a sense of pride in what they have created for their community.
Denise has recently been recognized by the City of University Place with a Proclamation for her “many years of commitment to this community, for her
support and contributions to the overall success of the Parks and Recreation
