Sandi Peterson Throws Hat Into Oak Harbor City Council Race

On March 21st 2013 Sandi Peterson announced that she is running for Oak Harbor City Council position 5 which is currently held by Joel Servatius.

In speaking with Sandi she states that her reason for running is that she has had enough! 

Enough of the culture of disrespect; enough of the lack of civility; enough of the council, with rare exception, acting without concern for those they serve, the citizens of Oak Harbor.  Enough of their over reaching and micro management. She believes that the people who live, work and do business here deserve better. 

She says she can no longer sit back and hope something changes.  It is time to step up to the plate and do something about the changes that we all know need to happen in the City of Oak Harbor.

Here are a few things that Sandi believes in and stands for.  This is certainly not a complete list and we will have more information on her campaign in the near future.

What can the citizens of Oak Harbor expect from Sandi? 

  • FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY She understands that the money the city spends comes from the toil of someone else’s brow and must be spent wisely and responsibly.
  • UNBIASED DECISIONS She can look at all sides of an issue, listen to the facts and come to decisions based on those facts, and not preconceived ideas.
  • A BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT at council meetings She has a no nonsense approach to getting business done, balanced with a sense of fair play.
  • AN ADVOCATE Sandi is also not afraid to speak up for what she believes is right and understands that her job will be to listen to and speak for the citizens of our city.

Sandi will make a great City Council member and will be one of the agents for change that the city of Oak Harbor so well needs. With her and Lucas Yonkman now in the race we citizens in Oak Harbor now have good choices for leadership which will benefit all citizens of the city.

  1. I have known Sandi for several years. What you read in this piece is just exactly Sandi. There is no smoke and mirrors with her and I believe she will be a great Council member. Good luck, Sandi. You have my support

  2. Sandi;
    At the next Oak Harbor Navy League meeting assuming you’re a OHNL member, look for a guy in a green jacket w/ an EA-18G Growler & Heritage Flight Museum patches. That’s me until summer arrives. Good luck and go get ’em.

  3. I have met Sandi a few times and was always impressed with her energy. If this abundant energy that she has goes with her into the Council Chambers we will have a real winner on our hands.

  4. I don’t know Sandi. No one has mentioned her qualifications. What might they be?

  5. Thanks Former Paratooper for asking. I have a pretty diverse background. Some of the highlights are:

    I’ve owned my own businesses, being responsible for everything from building a client base, sales, customer service, follow up and follow thru.

    I worked for a national franchisor in the franchising/legal department. My responsibilities included working with multiple states attorney’s general to be sure our franchise agreements meshed with their state laws and we would be allowed in as foreign corporations. I was also the director of customer service for that company.

    Also, I have a real estate brokers license, and worked in property management starting out as a leasing agent and culminating as a district manager.

    In addition I have a fabulous husband, who is a retired Navy Sr. Chief, 4 grown children, 8 grand kids and an old cat.

    Although this is a nonpartisan race, folks may want to know that I am active in the Republican Party and the Republican Women’s groups.

    Anyone who wants to contact me, I would welcome a conversation. My phone number is 360-441-1415. Email is

    1. Sandi’s statement of her background missed one point
      I’ve worked with Sandi over the past few years and found her to have the stick-to-it tenacity of a pit bulldog when it comes to solving a problem.
      She never stops until she has researched all the facts, options for corrective action and then a plan to make things happen; all accomplished by her working with a team composed of members who are proud to work with her

      She is firm but respected and NOT an autocratic manager
      With Sandi there WILL BE SOME CHANGES MADE and we’ll all be better off thanks to her leadership

  6. Sandy- I know you would be a welcome to the City Council and would be a great contributor to the Oak Harbor Community. Here to help…charge on to the finish line.
