Long-time Edmonds City Councilmember Michael Plunkett confirmed in an email Wednesday morning that he will be resigning from the City Council ‘in about a month.’
Plunkett, a real estate agent who has lived in Edmonds for more than 30 years, was elected to his fourth City Council term in 2009. He served as Council president in 2004 and 2008.
“It’s true,” Plunkett said in response to a question asking whether he would be resigning. “I’ll have a statement and time-frame out in about a month.”
My Edmonds News is awaiting confirmation from City Council President Strom Peterson about the process for replacing Plunkett, but generally a Council seat left open due to resignation is filled by council appointment, following council interviews with interested Edmonds residents who apply.
