Greg Wheeler - District No. 4

Greg Wheeler represents Bremerton City Council District 4 which includes neighborhoods near Downtown, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and Olympic College.  

Greg was re-elected to serve his third term through 2019.   

Greg serves on the Public Safety & Parks Committee and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Project Review Committee. 

He also represents the City of Bremerton as Vice-Chair of the Kitsap 911 Board of Directors and serves on the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) Growth Management Board.  

Greg is also member of the Kitsap Community Resources Board of Directors, Bremerton Kiwanis and Bremerton Rotary clubs; and also serves on the Salvation Army Advisory Board and Olympic College Organizational Leadership and Resource Management Advisory Committee.

Greg was the Council President from 2012 through 2015. 

In October 2011, he received a Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) after completing over 30 hours of training credits. In December 2013, he completed additional requirements to earn a Certificate of Advanced Municipal Leadership (AML) from AWC.   

Greg is a lifelong resident of Bremerton and a Navy Veteran, currently working in the Engineering Department at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. He and his wife Sunny are active in the community and supporters of local educational and environmental programs.

As a Council Member, he hopes to bring the City’s focus back to the neighborhoods, and believes this can be accomplished with maintained streets and sidewalks that are well lit, resolving parking issues, thoroughly staffing police and fire departments, and safe and accessible parks. He plans to work to ensure these core services are fully funded, thus enhancing the quality of life for all City residents.  

Greg also strives to create a business friendly climate by establishing incentives that will attract new businesses and retain existing ones. He plans to work to recruit employers who provide living wage jobs, which he said can be accomplished by providing the trained workforce that employers are looking for. By collaborating with high schools, technical programs, Olympic College and encouraging more four year degree programs a workforce that employer’s desire can be provided.  

Lastly, he will factor in the long term maintenance costs associated with any new projects; and how they will be funded, before voting to approve them. He takes seriously the responsibility of being entrusted with the City’s future. He also promises to advocate for seniors, families, our city’s economy and quality of life.

“Together we can make Bremerton a better place to live, learn, work, invest, and play.”
