Voters: You've received their ballots, and soon you’ll make decisions on important issues and races.
In the City of Issaquah, the office of mayor and four City Council positions are open in the Nov. 5, 2013, general election.
Issaquah voters will also decide on a park bond measure to protect open space and wildlife habitat, improve neighborhood parks and make repairs to Julius Boehm Pool. To learn more, visit issaquahwa.gov/parkbond.
Voters will elect representatives to these open positions:
• City Council Position 1: Joe Forkner, incumbent
• City Council Position 3: Eileen Barber, incumbent
• City Council Position 5: Stacy Goodman, incumbent
• City Council Position 7: Tola Marts, incumbent
• Mayor: Ava Frisinger, incumbent
The positions are for four-year terms. The candidates elected as mayor and to a majority of the council seats up for election will take office in January 2014.
The candidate elected to City Council Position 1 will take office once the election results are certified in November, because Councilmember Joe Forkner was appointed to fill a vacancy earlier this year.
