Scott Murphy Appointed to Everett City Council

Scott Murphy

Scott Murphy takes his oath of office as the newest member of the Everett City Council.

In a unanimous vote Wednesday night, the Everett City Council selected Scott Murphy to fill position 3, which opened after Arlan Hatloe announced his resignation effective the end of the year. Murphy was one of six applicants for the slot. Last week the field of six was reduced to three who were then interviewed by the full council. Tonight after each council member presented a case for their recommended applicant, Murphy beat out June Robinson who had previously campaigned twice for a position on the council and former Everett Mayor Pete Kinch. Murphy was immediately sworn in after the council vote. Murphy is currently the vice-chair of the Everett planning commission and works as the Chief Operating Officer for Goldfinch Brothers Glass. I had a chance to briefly catch Murphy at the end of the meeting and ask him about the appointment. “I’m truly honored and in particular humbled to have been selected out of such a strong field of candidates,” said Murphy. “I’m looking forward to joining the council.” Murphy said he hadn’t yet decided if he would run for election this fall. He’ll have to run if he wants to keep the position longer than the 10 and a half months until the fall election is certified.

    Unbelievable! And, how many votes by Everett’s voters has Mr. Murphy had cast for him in any prior election? None? June more than deserved that appointment. What a shame. Everett’s good ole boys at work…. AGAIN!
