6 Apply to Fill Hatloe’s Seat on Everett City Council

Everett City Council

The newest member of the Everett City Council will be chosen during the first meeting in January.

Six people have applied to fill position 3 on the Everett City Council. The man who currently holds the position, Arlan Hatloe, announced late last month that he was resigning from the council effective December 31st. He said he wants to spend more time with family and winter in a warmer climate. At the Wednesday City Council meeting President Ron Gipson announced the names of the six people who had applied to fill the position. They are:

Pete Kinch – a former Everett Mayor

Jocelyn Sievers-Bailey – a teacher in the Everett School District

Don Hopkins – a former Everett Port Commissioner

June Robinson – In November, ran for Drew Nielsen’s position in the general election and was defeated by Scott Bader

Heather Oie – Operations Manager, Snohomish County, former Lake Stevens City Council member

Scott Murphy – Chief Operating Officer Goldfinch Brothers, Inc.

The Council members will review the applications and interview the candidates in the coming weeks and then are expected to vote for Hatloe’s replacement at the first meeting of the new year.

In other news from Wednesday’s Everett City Council meeting, President Gipson put the brakes on awarding a bid for more than one million dollars for a railroad corridor trail and other enhancements on the Riverfront Development. For years the city has tried to move forward on developing the area which runs along the Snohomish River east of I-5. Gipson said he was holding up any action until the City Council received an update on the progress of the Riverfront Project.

Gipson also pushed back the public hearing and adoption of a proposed ordinance adopting the Central Waterfront Redevelopment Plan that addresses the future of the Kimberly Clark site on the Everett Waterfront. Gipson explained that he didn’t feel the council members have had enough time to review the proposed ordinance.
