As the Sammamish City Council prepares to transition next month to the largest makeover in a single year since incorporation, the first order of business after the swearing in of four new council members will be to select a mayor for the next two years and deputy mayor for the next year.
Christie Malchow earned selection as mayor. Tom Hornish earned selection as deputy mayor.
Both are two years in to their first, four-year term.
Their leadership and willingness to dig deeply into issues during their first two years has been nothing short of outstanding. Their honor and integrity is likewise outstanding.
