The Sammamish Review has this story focusing on the absentee record of Council Member John Curley, a first-term member three years into his four year term.

When Curley was elected in 2009, he said he would only serve one term. But he’s been absent from 17% of the Council Meetings, some of which had critical votes on issues on the agenda.

Curley had widely been expected to use the City Council as a stepping stone to the State Legislature, but for a variety of reasons he as yet hasn’t made a move in this direction.

The article is self-explanatory. After reading it, decide for yourself whether Curley should resign as some have urged, or whether too much is being made out of this.
