Rescheduled applicant interviews for Edmonds City Council Position 2 seat this Tuesday, Thursday

After the postponement of last week’s Edmonds City Council meeting — and the first round of applicant interviews for the vacant Position 2 council seat — due to snow and ice, there will be two city council meetings this week — on Tuesday and Thursday.

The Tuesday, Jan. 21 meeting, starting at 7 p.m., will be dedicated exclusively to interviewing candidates and includes the following:

7 p.m. – Alicia Crank

7:30 p.m. – Lora Petso

8 p.m. – Jay Grant

8:30 p.m. – Roger Pence

9 p.m. – Jenna Nand

9:30 p.m. Carreen Rubenkonig

The Thursday, Jan. 23 council meeting will start at 6 p.m with a brief business meeting, followed by these interviews:

6:30 p.m. – Matt Cheung

7 p.m. – Will Chen

7:30 p.m. – Deborah Binder

8 p.m. – Luke Distelhorst

8:30 p.m. – Doug Petersen

9 p.m. – Nathan Monroe

Each interview will be 25 minutes, which includes a two-and-a-half-minute opening/closing by the candidate. Each councilmember will have three minutes to ask their questions. There will be a five-minute break between each interview.

In fairness to all applicants, the candidates will be asked to wait in the lobby until they are called. Interviews will be video recorded for the public but won’t be live-streamed, and the broadcast will be available online after noon on Friday, Jan. 24.
