Laura Mork, Shoreline City Council
Shoreline City Councilmember Laura Mork recently earned a Certificate of Municipal Leadership from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC).

AWC’s Certificate of Municipal Leadership program recognizes city and town elected officials for accomplishing training in five core areas:
  1. Roles, responsibilities, and legal requirements
  2. Public sector resource management
  3. Community planning and development
  4. Effective local leadership
  5. Diversity, equity, and inclusion
Mork completed more than 30 hours of training to earn this distinction.

Mork was elected to City Council in 2021. Her term expires December 31, 2025. 

Prior to being elected to the City Council, Mork served on the Shoreline Planning Commission from 2013 to 2021. There she worked on many community issues, including affordable housing, spaces for neighborhood businesses, and new construction around our two light rail stations. 

Her contributions helped the City earn an award for its Deep Green Incentive Program for sustainable construction projects and obtain Salmon-Safe certification for City programs that promote habitat protection. 

She was also appointed to the Ronald Wastewater District Board in 2017 and elected to that position in 2019, where she served until the 2021 assumption by the City. Laura brings a wide range of experience to the City Council from her career as a chemical engineer, facilities manager, and as a professionally certified project manager.

Mork’s external committee assignments include the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration; the National League of Cities Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Committee; and the Sound Cities Association’s Solid Waste Advisory Committee.

AWC serves its members through advocacy, education, and services. Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington's 281 cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with regulatory agencies.
