Snoqualmie City Council looks to fill vacant position

The Snoqualmie City Council is now accepting applications to fill a vacant council seat.

Applications for the position are due no later than 5 p.m. Sept. 10. To qualify, residents must have lived within city limits for at least the last year and must be a registered voter.

Applications will be viewed by the council, who will appoint the next councilmember using a majority vote. The selected candidate will fill the position until Dec. 2023.

The seat was vacated by Councilmember Sean Sundwall, who announced his intent to resign from his council position on Aug. 12. He will officially leave the council on Aug. 30.

Sundwall joined the council via appointment in 2017, following the death of Councilmember Charles Peterson. Sundwall was then elected to council in Nov. 2019.

During his resignation, Sundwall did not provide a reason for his departure. He previously declined to comment on his decision. He also told the Valley Record he would give a formal statement at the Aug. 23 city council meeting, but that meeting was cancelled.

The Valley Record again reached out to Sundwall, who did not return comment.
