The Snohomish County Council voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Lynnwood City Council Vice President Stephanie Wright as its newest member. Wright will fill the District 3 seat vacated by Mike Cooper, who left in July to become the new mayor of Edmonds.
Edmonds City Councilmember D.J. Wilson and Lynnwood Planning Commission Member Maria Ambalada were also in the running for the position. Last month, Democratic precinct committee officers from County Council District 3 chose Wright as their top pick, with 33 votes. Wilson came in second with 11 votes. Ambalada received one vote. Those recommendations were forwarded to the County Council as an advisory.
