Hello, my name is Karen Clark, and I want your vote to be elected as a Bayside City Council Member, Place 1.
My husband and I purchased our property in Bayside five years ago. However, many of you may not know me because we have only been living in Bayside for 15 months.
Some of you may remember me as the person who volunteered at the Bayside city office for two months after the May election.
My husband, Dennis, and I married in July 1965, and we have two daughters, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
I raised our daughters while I worked as bookkeeper/secretary/treasurer for my husband’s business, Clark Precision Inc. in El Dorado, Kan., where I was born.
I served as PTA mom and PTO president for daughter’s elementary school; Brownie and Girl Scout leader for my daughter’s groups during their middle school years and was district leader for Girl Scouts of America, El Dorado, Kan.
I also was a volunteer bowling instructor for children K-12 and those with special needs.
We moved from Kansas to Texas in 1984, and we owned a home in Portland for 15 years before building our home in Bayside. We fell in love with the two lots where we now live, because of the wonderful trees.
I retired after 18 years as office manager from Bay Area Anesthesia and then Dennis and I spent 4 years traveling in our motor home before settling in our Bayside home.
I wish I had moved to Bayside 40 years ago. I love it. It’s just a friendly town.
We enjoy getting together with family, friends and neighbors and enjoy babysitting our 14-month-old great-grandchild.
Again, my business background, my leadership experience and my love of family qualifies me for the Bayside City Council. Vote for me, Karen Clark, for Place 1.
Remember, early voting in person begins Oct. 18 for the Nov.2 general election.
