#BetterWithBoeing Campaign Launch

#BetterWithBoeing Campaign Launch
Posted on 09/17/2020

On Tuesday, September 15, Snohomish County and City of Everett leaders launched the “Better With Boeing” campaign, a community-led initiative to highlight the unique strengths of the region and reinforce why Boeing’s long-term success is rooted in growing and maintaining operations in Washington state. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our region’s aviation industry partners are experiencing an unprecedented decline in demand for their products and services. As such, they are aggressively seeking to reduce costs and maximize efficiencies. Boeing has difficult decisions to make to cut costs and increase efficiencies, and is currently studying what it would mean to consolidate 787 production in a single state. Currently, the Dreamliner models are built in both Washington and North Charleston, South Carolina. The campaign’s message to Boeing is that we are better with Boeing, and Boeing’s future is brighter and secure right here in Washington State.

“Our partnership with Boeing stretches over fifty years,” said Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers. “Generations of Snohomish County residents have built their careers at Boeing – designers, engineers, machinists and other professionals. They’ve built the company and shaped its success, and we hope this relationship continues for many decades to come.”

The campaign launched a new website, BetterWithBoeing.com. Mill Creek residents are encouraged to use the hashtag #BetterWithBoeing to share why they think Boeing will benefit by continuing the 787 production in Washington State. Residents can also download a campaign toolkit on the website.
