No raises for elected officials for the next two years says Everett Citizens’ Commission on salaries of elected officials.

The final minutes of their April meeting aren’t posted but we do have the decision from the City of Everett’s Citizens Commission on Salaries of Elected Officials. No raises for the next two years.

The commission meets every other year and is required to complete its work by the first week in May in years where they are in session. While in the past, Citizens Commissions have allowed cost of living and other raises for elected officials in Everett, Washington this time around the answer was simply salaries will remain at their current levels for both 2022 and 2023. The commission will meet again in 2023 to consider salaries for elected officials in 2024 and 2025.

The Mayor’s Salary is $16,246.00 per month (this is a full time position)

A City Council Member’s Salary is $2,511.00 per month (this is a part time position)

Councilmember who serves as City Council President/Mayor Pro Tem is paid an additional 30% above Councilmembers

Municipal Court Judges (Everett has two) are paid equal to that of a Washington State District Court Judge who are currently paid $190,120.00 per year.

The Commission has no input on benefits for Everett’s elected officials.
