Penny Coffey will run for re-election to DuPont City Council Position #4. Coffey has been an important advocate on the City Council for forward thinking action. She has supported many important projects including completion of the Civic Center, the successful effort to build a professional Fire Department and development of the City trail system including Sequalitchew Trail access.
Penny also co-chaired the City’s Cultural Heritage Committee and has volunteered for variety of non-profit organizations including the DuPont Historical Society, Friends of the Library and is a charter member and an officer on the DuPont Lions Club. DuPont resident, Bert Wyant affirms, “Penny Coffey has been a strong advocate for our community organizations. I’ve worked with both her and her husband Roy on a variety of events, fundraisers and community projects. She’s a terrific volunteer and follows through.”
Penny Coffey’s style is to collaborate through constructive dialogue. Penny does her homework, asks tough questions, and most importantly is motivated by a sincere desire to keep the City moving in a positive direction. Ron and Doris Stewart say, “We will vote for Penny because we are impressed with her work on the City Council. She is not satisfied with business as usual. Instead she strives to understand every aspect of an issue before making a decision based on her own investigation. She has demonstrated the fact that she is not afraid to ask questions.”
Penny has lived in DuPont since 1998 when the city’s population was a quarter of what it is today. As a City Council member, Penny helped transition DuPont from a small village to a vibrant city with 8,200 residents and a downtown business district. “Both Louise and I will vote for Penny Coffey because we want her leadership to continue. DuPont needs Penny’s knowledge and expertise on the Council” states Jay Bollman.
Penny’s husband Roy is a retired City of Portland firefighter and a real estate agent in DuPont. Penny and Roy are parents and step-parents of 5 adult children and 8 grandkids.
