When Mike Poirier won the Wenatchee Mayor's race, it created a vacancy for the Wenatchee City Council Position District 2 seat he represented.

The city is accepting applications from qualified residents interested in serving up through the deadline of 5pm on Friday, January 12th.

Qualified officeholders must be a registered voter, a resident of the city of Wenatchee for a minimum of one year and reside within the District 2 boundary.  The district lies between Cherry Street, Okanogan Avenue and various streets and roads along Wenatchee's Western Foothills.

Applications are available at City Hall, online at www.wenatcheewa.gov or by contacting the City Clerk at cityclerk@wenatcheewa.gov. Applications must be received by the City Clerk no later than the 5:00 pm deadline of January 12th.
