Edmonds City Council seek applicants for 2021-22 student representative

The Edmonds City Council is seeking energetic student representative applicants to participate at council meetings during the 2021-2022 academic year. 

The student representative attends city council meetings from September 2021 through August 2022. There are four council meetings per month, held on Tuesdays from 7 p.m. to approximately 10 p.m. Students must reside within the Edmonds city limits, and must be entering grades 11 or 12, or be of equivalent age if not enrolled in a traditional school program. Students do not have to attend high school in the Edmonds School District. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Aug. 30, 2021.

“Student representatives offer important perspectives and views to the council,” said Council President Susan Paine, “We look forward to meeting our future student leaders during the interview process.” 

Those interested in applying for the position should contact Maureen Judge, city council legislative aide, at Maureen.judge@edmondswa.gov or 425-771-0248.

  1. The student Representatives always seem like nice enough kids. Being on the the council as a student representative certainly would help with their college applications. Mostly they just sit on the sidelines don’t say much like some kind of mascot or a prop unfortunately. Of course, would really love to see them be more actively involved. Or asking questions about the current city council process for educational purposes like:

    How come many of the votes for the council seem to be predetermined 4 to 3 regardless of citizen input?

    Why does it seem like some of the council members act like their employees of the Mayor?

    Isn’t having a police chief who has domestic violence concerns a bad thing?

    How come it seems like the city department heads are the ones running the the city. Who elected them?

    If the student representative asks questions that are embarrassing to the city will they be reported on the Mayor’s portal?
