Applications now being accepted to fill Edmonds City Council vacancy

If you’ve thought about serving on the Edmonds City Council, here’s your chance. The application for appointment to the council’s Position 1 seat is now available on the city’s website.

The position is open following the death of Councilmember Kristiana Johnson July 18.

The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022 at 4 p.m. To be eligible, applicants must have lived in Edmonds for one year and must be registered to vote in the city.

The appointed Position No.1 term will expire after results of the November 2023 general election have been certified.  As a result, the person who will be appointed is eligible — but not required — to campaign for election to maintain their seat.

Interviews are expected to be conducted later this month, with the council voting on the appointment in early September.
