With the Position 2 seat left vacant by Mike Nelson, our new mayor, the city looks to fill that position by soliciting applications.
Applicants can share their volunteer experience, previously elected positions, strengths and weaknesses and what their three priorities would be for the city. Applicants will be asked to share what they see their and the council’s role is in our community. Finally, applicants are asked “what is the greatest challenge” for the city council.
Candidates who run for office are generally asked these questions while on the campaign trail – and if they aren’t they should be.
I suggest those candidates who ran for council positions in this election and came up short as having applied for this position and should be considered first when filling this position in the order of votes received.
With the results being: Nand (5,902), Crank (6,788), White (6,856) and Monroe (6,972), I suggest that the citizens of Edmonds deserve to seat Nathan Monroe for Position 2.
