Today, January 10th, 2022, the Snohomish County Council selected Councilmember Megan Dunn as chair of the council for 2022. Councilmember Dunn is in her first term on the council; representing the 2nd council district.

“I am honored to have been selected by my fellow councilmembers as Chair of the Snohomish County Council,” said Council Chair Megan Dunn. “I am grateful to have been entrusted with this leadership role and look forward to working with my colleagues as we continue to respond and recover from the pandemic, address climate change, and work to provide better opportunities for the people of Snohomish County.”

The council selected Councilmember Jared Mead to serve as vice-chair of the council. The vice-chair is part of the leadership team for the council and serves as chair in the event of an absence. Councilmember Mead is in his 1st term on the council and represents District 4.

Vice-Chair Jared Mead added, “I am grateful for and humbled by the trust of my fellow councilmembers who elected me as their Council Vice-Chair today. I am excited to take on this new leadership role so early in my tenure on the council. Let’s get to work!”

The council votes for a chair and vice-chair annually during the first meeting of a new year. “I’m excited to work with Chair Dunn, Vice Chair Mead, and the rest of the Council on the issues which matter most to Snohomish County residents. I have always appreciated the collegiality and mutual respect of our Council and look forward to seeing that continue under this new leadership team,” said Councilmember Nate Nehring.

“We have faced a multitude of unexpected challenges these last two years and I’m proud of how we came together as a community to face them,” said Councilmember Stephanie Wright. “Fundamental to public service is simply helping people who need help, and to do so with equal parts empathy and determination. I believe that Councilmember Dunn will bring this with her to council leadership as the 2022 Chair. This last year, Megan has been a fantastic partner as we navigated the pandemic and worked towards a return to normalcy. I believe Councilmembers Dunn and Mead will have great success as the new council leadership team.”
