We appreciate fellow Mercer Islanders who step up to serve on our City Council.
At the same time, we feel the community is best served when we have the opportunity to have new voices on the council, especially on such important issues as I-90 Tolling. On this critical issue our community, off-island clientele and employers are deeply concerned about the prospect of tolling. Kevin Scheid, the clear NO TOLLING candidate for a seat on the City Council, states that, “No one should have to pay a toll on one road to finance another road.”
Kevin Scheid, who has managed multi-million dollar military budgets, and is Vice President of a Mercer Island based firm specializing in leadership and management consulting, has an Engineering Degree from the Coast Guard Academy and an MBA from Purdue University. Kevin’s leadership has been felt as well on Mercer Island, where he has coached Boys & Girls Club sports, served as a member of the High School Site Committee, was a member of the interview committee for the high school principal, and has chaired the Mercer Island Girls Lacrosse Board.
Kevin has been endorsed by former Mercer Island Mayor and State Senator Jim Horn, City Councilmembers Mike Grady, Mike Cero, and Eva Zemplenyi.
Ms. Zemplenyi stated “This council race is essential to keeping I-90 toll free. I’m concerned that the City Council will resort to its prior efforts to look for a compromise. Kevin understands the big picture and will be a strong, unwavering voice in keeping I-90 toll free for everyone.”
Kevin Scheid lives on the Island with his wife Bobette. All four of their children graduated from Mercer Island High School. Bobette Scheid is also a community
leader serving as the current President of the Mercer Island Women’s Club.
