Councilmember Jolyon Johnson, Position 7
Our beautiful mountains, trees, and great schools have drawn many families to Snoqualmie. Just as Snoqualmie has provided my family with so many opportunities, I look forward to giving back to the community by serving on the city council. My primary goals are to protect our parks, repair and replace our aging infrastructure, and make sure Snoqualmie remains a place to live, work, and play for generations to come by expanding our inclusive housing programs and providing walkable access to retail.
Prior to my work on council, I served as president of the Ridgestone HOA and as Chair of the Planning Commission. In these positions, I have worked through complex policy and balanced the varied interests of the residents of our city. On the council, I will continue to address the needs of our community and conserve Snoqualmie’s natural scenery by ensuring future growth is done sustainably.
I am a high school physics teacher and father of two. I love to hike on the many trails through the I-90 corridor and travel with my family. I received a BS in Geology from California State University, Chico and a Master in Teaching from the University of Washington. Prior to teaching I was a research astronomer studying double stars and exoplanets.
