In a special meeting on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, the Snoqualmie City Council appointed Louis Washington to fill vacant Council Position 5.

Mr. Washington works in the Medical and Pharmaceutical industry as an Area Business Manager for Strategic Customers, with a focus on mental health.

Mr. Washington has lived in Snoqualmie for five years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and economics from Western Washington University and a master’s degree in finance and economics from Seattle University.

“Through my life experiences I have learned the importance of a broad representation of opinions, a need to evaluate alternative opinions, and finding practical solutions,” said Mr. Washington. “I am prepared to devote my time and energy to serving on the Council and will endeavor to help Snoqualmie prosper. Specifically, I want to focus my priorities on supporting local businesses, preserving the sense of community, and ensuring a sustainable environment for all Snoqualmie residents.”

During Tuesday’s special meeting, Councilmembers interviewed six residents who submitted applications to fill Position 5. They thanked all applicants, expressing gratitude for the diverse, qualified pool of residents that are ready and willing to serve their community. 

Mr. Washington will begin serving on April 10 following the administration of the Oath of Office by Mayor Ross during the regular City Council meeting.
