Cindy Gobel

For Marysville City Council, Position 1

Marysville is rapidly growing and requires experienced leadership with a comprehensive view towards the future and the ability to implement the needs of our community. With a background in law enforcement, as well as local and state government, my commitment to our community is rooted in years of service. I am ready to serve as your next Marysville City Council, Position 1 representative. 

Issues, Vision & Values


Marysville is growing and our community needs to look towards its future. Our infrastructure continues to play catchup with the ever-expanding population growth while 10- and 20-year plans lag behind our foreseen growth and transit needs. Life-long residents are looking for leadership that can help our community grow while meeting our needs.

There has been immense focus on developing Marysville as a location for big business while small, locally owned establishments continue to struggle. The revitalization of Marysville’s downtown has been given performative lip service year after year. Residents of our city want local establishments to thrive, want more local opportunities for enjoyment, and want our city to provide adequate services to those in need.

If our collective goal is to make the city of Marysville a thriving community where residents live, work, play then our focus must be to meet the needs of all who call Marysville home.

Offering events that have a broad reach of interest would provide a wealth of opportunity to Marysville’s residents along with increasing revenue within the city. Creating infrastructure that provides adequate transportation needs in and around our community is vital for growth. The need to support our community members that are struggling with housing, addiction, and food insecurity is always present. This past year has drawn attention to our need for increased services as our local families have struggled to make ends meet.


My vision for the city of Marysville is to enrich our community for residents both established and new. Create a thriving and accessible downtown that welcomes small businesses and shoppers, provides opportunity for all to flourish, and celebrates the diversity that makes our city unique. 


I believe that our community can maintain its relationships while building new opportunities. We have lived here for generations, built this town from a one lane highway to the 2nd largest city in the county, and we have maintained our family values and integrity along the way. My vision for Marysville’s future is one that celebrates diversity and equality, where we work together to ensure that our community builds an even stronger foundation while providing opportunity for our children and their future. We must work together as we continue to build a community of family values, positive growth and a bright future.

The Leadership Our City Needs

Meet Cindy

It is entirely possible we’ve already met! I am a longtime resident of Marysville and a mom to two teenage daughters in the Marysville School District. Previously I worked for Snohomish County in the Auditor’s office assisting folks with election and voter registration needs. Currently, I work for the Secretary of State, where my position ensures legal compliance for all Washington State elections.

I spend much of my free time volunteering as a Girl Scout troop leader and PTSA Board Member for both Pilchuck and Getchell high schools along with encouraging our youth to participate in the Future Voters Program. I also participate in various organizations like the American Association of University Women and Washington Women Lawyers.

I believe the city of Marysville has a wealth of untapped opportunities to provide its residents. New leadership means new ideas, and new ideas lead to growth and development. Please join me in continuing to make Marysville a great place to raise our families.
