City Council

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.

Sequim's voters elect seven, non-partisan Councilors to four-year terms on a citywide basis. Council elections are held in odd-numbered years. For more information on elections or how to register to vote visit Clallam County Elections.
