Support for city manager

More than 100 community members rallied at the corners of Washington Street and Sequim Avenue on Monday afternoon holding signs to support Sequim City Manager Charlie Bush. The Sequim City Council was set to vote Monday night on Bush’s severance package after a majority of council members voted to call for his resignation on Jan. 11.

“From everything I’ve read, he’s done an exemplary job as city manager,” Sequim resident Janine Bocciardi said.

Members of the group Sequim Good Governance League submitted a petition with 1,239 signatures asking to retain Bush to the city council with more than 680 people designating their city as Sequim, including at least four former Sequim city council members.

“We want to let Charlie know that his community is behind him, and he’s a great city manager,” said Shenna Younger, a member of the Sequim Good Governance League and founder of the petition. “This community is not OK with the actions of our city council.”
