Councilmember Kate Bishop Launches Reelection Campaign


After four years on the Ferndale City Council, Kate Bishop announces her campaign for reelection. 

“It is an incredible honor serving as your voice on the City Council, but our work is just beginning,” said Bishop. “As a social services professional and working mom, I bring a unique perspective and am ready to keep fighting for our local businesses, playgrounds and neighborhoods.” 

Bishop has served as the Mayor Pro Tem for the last two years where she helped the city navigate a difficult transition between Mayor Mutchler and incoming Mayor Hansen. She currently serves as the chair of the Finance and Administration committee, providing essential oversight on the city budget. In 2019, Bishop helped create the North Whatcom Poverty Task Force, and leads the charge to invest in affordable housing in Ferndale.

“We need big, bold action on affordable housing so that rising property values don’t push us out of our homes,” said Bishop. “Ferndale is a community for all, not just all who can afford it.”

“We have all experienced the trauma of last year but we will not let it define us. Join me in fighting for local businesses, affordable housing and justice,” said Bishop. 

Bishop will be holding a campaign kickoff online on Zoom on April 27th, To receive the link, please email the campaign at To sign up to volunteer with the campaign or donate, please go to
