One of six people will fill this Shoreline council seat
By Evan Smith

The Shoreline City Council has chosen six candidates for a vacant council position to interview at the Monday Jan. 28 council meeting.

Fifty-three Shoreline residents submitted applications for the open position and six of those were chosen for Monday's interviews.

The six candidates are:
  1. Genevieve Arredondo 
  2. David Chen
  3. Jennifer Greenlee
  4. Eben Pobee
  5. Rebeca Rivera
  6. Betsy Robertson

The six current Council members will go into executive session to discuss the interviews and choose one person. They will return to open session for the formal vote and swear in the new council member.

They will then elect a new Deputy Mayor

The position became vacant in December, when former Councilmember / Deputy Mayor Jesse Salomon resigned to begin his new duties as State Senator from the 32nd Legislative District.

Salomon won election to the state senate position in November, when he defeated incumbent Democratic State Sen. Maralyn Chase.

The appointment to the open position will run from January 28 through certification of the November 5. 2019 general election when the candidate who wins the November election will immediately be sworn in.

The candidate chosen this Monday will need to run for office in November, alongside anyone else who files, if they wish to remain on council.
