The City encouraged qualified individuals to apply to serve as the newest member of the Issaquah City Council. Now, 14 residents have answered the invitation. Meet the applicants for the vacant position: 

  • John Birrell-Levine withdrawn

Qualified applicants must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter and a resident of the City of Issaquah for at least one year prior to the appointment. 

The seat became vacant Jan. 1, 2018, due to the resignation of Justin Walsh who moved out of the Issaquah city limits.

Applicants were given the opportunity to provide a 10-minute verbal presentation to the Council at a special meeting on Jan. 16. Watch the special meeting on the City’s YouTube channel. 

Next, the community is invited to attend a meet-and-greet with the applicants at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 23 in the Eagle Room, 130 E. Sunset Way. 

Provide Feedback
Council invites residents to provide feedback regarding criteria, desired qualities or qualifications they should consider when filling the vacant seat. Please submit comments to City Council.

Next Steps
Council expects to fill the vacancy Feb. 5, and if the appointee is present at the meeting, the oath of office may be conducted then. The appointee to the vacant seat will serve until the November 2019 general election is certified.
