Don Gerend was selected Mayor for the next two years and Ramiro Valderrama Deputy Mayor for the next year at the first Sammamish City Council meeting today (Jan. 5).
The positions are selected by the City Council under the City Manager form of government, rather than voters.
The votes for both were unanimous.
Congratulations to both!!!
Attended the council meeting tonight and enjoyed the swearing in ceremony for our newly elected officials. My son attended as part of a Merit Badge project for scouts (Troop 677) and he was very interested in the process for choosing our new Mayor and Deputy Mayor. Government in action!
