Filing to begin for council seats
Woodinville residents who wish to enter the race for one of four city council seats opening up this fall must apply with King County Elections at the King County Administration Building between July 28 and August 1.
Four city council positions, including those currently occupied by Mayor Bob Miller, Deputy Mayor Don Brocha, Councilmember Lucy DeYoung, and Councilmember Art Saulness, are up for election this November.
The council meets the first four Mondays of each month at 7 p.m. and as needed. Councilmembers formulate policy for the city through debates and the passage of ordinances and resolutions.
Candidates must be registered voters and have lived in the city for at least one year by election day. Councilmembers represent the city as a whole and are voted on at-large. Successful candidates serve four-year terms, ending December 31, 2001.
Forms and information are available at City Hall. A candidate orientation to city procedures, mission, filing requirements, organization, and attorney briefing has been tentatively set for July 22. Call Community Services Coordinator Marie Stake at 489-2700, ext. 245, for more information. King County Elections can be reached at 296-1565.
