Leanne Guier became a pipefitter apprentice in 1997, working in the field until becoming a piping detailer in 2006. In 2010, she was brought into the office to serve as the political director for Local 32.
Additionally, Guier sat on the planning commission for the City of Pacific in 2004 until appointed to City Council in 2009. She was appointed Mayor of Pacific in 2013, and elected in 2015.
Guier serves on various boards and commissions including: State Building Code Council, Seattle Priority Hire, Sound Cities Association Executive Board, Regional Transit Committee, (representing Sound Cities Association), and the Regional Water Quality Control Committee (representing Sound Cities Association).
Having a background in retail management prior to becoming a Steamfitter has benefited Guier in working with others as a team player. Putting all these experiences together today, gives her the opportunity to speak with a wide array of people about apprenticeship opportunities, especially women. Being recognized as a leader in the labor community and a leader in the elected community creates various avenues for discussion. An opportunity to walk the talk and lead by example.
