Shawn Jarvela

Shawn Jarvela

Political Office: Crosby City Council
Age: 31
Family: Single Father
Occupation: School bus driver, fire fighter, lawn care technician

Fair, Non-biased, Available

I am committed to expanding business opportunities for private, locally owned businesses with the aim of improving living-wage employment.

I would have an open-door policy. I would listen and actually seek out opinions from business owners when policy affects them.

Tourism has been a wonderful boon to our community; but I feel that we need to encourage more livingwage type jobs in the Crosby area.

I don’t bring any political experience or bias to this position, but I promise that I will strive to help make good decisions for Crosby. I am responsible and reliable and will make meetings a priority. I will bring to the table a care for both residents and business owners.
