Lindquist Joins PUD Board

Posted Friday, December 28, 2018

Skagit PUD welcomes Joe Lindquist to its Board of Commissioners. Lindquist takes the seat held by Robbie Robertson, who served on the board since 2001.

Joe -Lindquist -web --Prior to being elected as a PUD commissioner, Lindquist served as a member of the Mount Vernon City Council. During his tenure, Lindquist served two years as mayor pro-tem and chaired the Parks and Recreation, Finance, Public Safety, Traffic Safety, and Development Services Committees.

“My experience as a Mount Vernon City Council Member for 13 years gives me valuable experience in a culture of transparency, accountability, and responsibility in public service,” Lindquist said.

Lindquist says he will also bring a fresh perspective to the PUD with his knowledge of large public works projects.

“As a city council member, I have been a part of some of the largest public works projects in Mount Vernon’s history; the floodwall and Skagit Riverwalk construction, as well as a $37 million upgrade to the city’s wastewater plant.” Lindquist said.

Now at the PUD, Lindquist plans to focus his attention on the replacement of the Judy Reservoir to Mount Vernon transmission line.

“It’s a big and very visible project. A lot of people travel state Route 9 between Sedro-Woolley and Mount Vernon, and will be impacted by that project.”

Lindquist, who works as a financial advisor at the Mount Vernon office of Robert W. Baird, is also active in the community. He serves as Skagit Rotary Foundation president, Summersun Montessori board president, and is president-elect of the Skagit Rotary Club.

Lindquist is a graduate of Western Washington University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

In his spare time, Lindquist enjoys weightlifting, running, wake surfing, boating, and spending time with his wife Stefanie, and two daughters Annika and Emilia.
