Sequim's elected representatives
The City Council is the city's legislative body, and Councilors are the elected representatives of people living in Sequim. Sequim operates with a Council-Manager form of government. The Council's principal job is making policy. Councilors appoint a City Manager who is the chief executive officer and head of the administrative branch implementing policy. The Council elects a Mayor from among its membership, and the Mayor's primary duty is presiding over Council meetings.
Sequim's voters elect Councilors to four-year terms on a citywide basis and not from districts. The seven positions are non-partisan. City Council elections are held in odd-numbered years. Councilors serve staggered terms so that about half of the Council positions are on the ballot every two years.
