Steve Dana grew up in Snohomish and really never left. After living in Everett for a couple years, he and his wife Noreen, moved back to Snohomish in 1979 living most of that time on Ford Avenue. He and Noreen owned The Hub for 25 years. Steve now sells real estate at Century 21 North Homes Realty.
Since 1987, Steve has served the city in some capacity, both as an elected councilmember and mayor and as a volunteer on the old Board of Adjustment, and for the past nearly 20 years on the Planning Commission. In addition to that, he served terms on the boards of the Food Bank, the Senior Center, the Affordable Housing Group and the Chamber of Commerce. At different times over the past 50 years, he served in the Jaycees, the Lions and currently the Snohomish Kiwanis.
