Mayor Katherine Ross

Mayor Ross headshot_FINAL_20240104Mayor Katherine Ross |  Email Mayor Ross  |  Term Expires: 12/31/2025

For nearly two decades, I have made a home in Snoqualmie with my husband where we have raised our twin daughters. My girls started kindergarten here and graduated from Mount Si High School. During this time, I volunteered in our schools, Snoqualmie city committees and non-profit organizations in the Valley.

My five years on City Council, nearly two decades of community service and close to 20 years in business management have prepared me to be an effective leader for Snoqualmie.

As Mayor, I will ensure a fiscally sustainable budget, protect the quality levels of service, provide a friendly economic environment for our businesses, facilitate affordable housing for our workforce, seniors and grown children, support options to expand the community center with a pool, and advocate for completion of improvements to I-90/SR 18 intersection and widening SR 18.

I am honored to serve our residents as your Mayor. I will take a balanced, pragmatic approach to issues and make decisions that will preserve the heritage, culture, and lifestyle of our community.
