Judge Wynne listens as the Everett City Council votes his appointment as Municipal Court Judge

Former Superior Court Judge Thomas Wynne was formally approved by the Everett City Council as a judge for the Everett Municipal Court. He was selected by Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson and will serve through November of next year when the position will be filled by election.

Tim O’Dell retired from the Everett Municipal Court on June 30th of this year creating a vacancy. Earlier this year the Everett City Council changed the residency rule requirement for Municipal Court Judge so the position could be temporarily filled by someone living outside of the Everett city limits. Whoever runs for the seat next fall will have to live inside the city of Everett. Wynne had served as Superior Court Judge in Snohomish County for 24 years before announcing his retirement earlier this year.

Speaking about next year’s elections…Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson says he will wait until after the first of the year to announce whether or not he will run for re-election. Snohomish County Council member Brian Sullivan has put together an exploratory committee and is looking at running for Mayor of Everett. The formal filing period begins in May of 2017.
