Sequim City Council seeks youthful advisers

SEQUIM — They’re just hoping they don’t seem too nerdy.

Members of the Sequim City Council seek some new blood and some youthful energy, and, hey, how about some hip ideas?

Those could all come into Monday night meetings at the Transit Center in the form of student representatives from the high school, middle school, Boys & Girls Club and Sequim Alternative School.

“Exposing us to their ideas is very important,” said Councilman John Beitzel.

“They come up with the darnedest things,” added Mayor Walt Schubert, who’s been known to lunch with local students.

“It’s a real kick.”

During its meeting Monday, the City Council voted to include four young advisers, to be elected by their schools’ student bodies beginning this year.

The students would attend council meetings and give reports back at school on issues of interest to other youngsters.

Schubert emphasized that the new advisers wouldn’t vote on ordinances or any other city matters.
