SEQUIM — Troy Tenneson has resigned his Sequim City Council position.
Tenneson notified city officials Friday that he was resigning his seat immediately because of a family emergency.
Tenneson was elected to the Sequim City Council in 2019 and has served since Jan. 1.
“This came as a shock,” Sequim Mayor William Armacost said. “Troy was born and raised in the City of Sequim. He is bright, well-educated, and walks the talk. You can take his word to the bank.
“We are going to miss the input on the City Council of a young adult in our community who can shed light from the perspective of a professional younger person.
“We wish Troy all the best and will do whatever we can to support him as a council and city.”
The City Council will appoint an person to fill the unexpired term of the vacant position.
Applicants must be registered voters living within Sequim city limits at the time of applying for candidacy, have a one-year continuous period of residence in Sequim preceding service on the council, and hold no other public office or employment in city government.
Interviews for the vacant position will be conducted by council members at a regular or special meeting.
