EVERETT, Wash. – The City of Everett will be swearing in four new city council members on Jan. 3 at 4 p.m. For the first time in its history, the city will be represented by five district council members and two at-large council members, and have a women-led majority. The ceremony will be available for public viewing at youtube.com/EverettCity/live.
“A women-led majority and district representation are both firsts for our city and I am proud to be part of this historic moment,” said Mayor Cassie Franklin. “I look forward to working with all of the new council members.”
In 2018 Everett voters approved council districts. 2021 was the first election year by district. Candidates ran for 4-year terms in positions one through five, representing the new districts. In 2023, elections will be held for at-large positions six and seven for 4-year terms.
The Everett City Council is the legislative branch of city government that represents city residents in establishing both policy and legislative direction to the administrative branch of city government for current and future needs.
