The Sequim City Council voted to appoint Sarah Kincaid and Mike Pence to fill two open council positions at the April 27 City Council meeting. Kincaid will fill the seat vacated by Jennifer States when her job required her to relocate out of the City. Pence will fill the position vacated by the passing of Deputy Mayor Ted Miller. Both appointments will expire on December 31, 2021. Appointed Councilors are required by State law to run for election at the next City Council election, which will occur in November 2021. The Council made the decision after interviewing four candidates: Kincaid, Pence, Lowell Rathbun, and Robert Sheckler. Kincaid and Pence were sworn into office by City Clerk Sara McMillion at the virtual meeting.
Kincaid is a retired office manager and quality control supervisor and has lived in the City of Sequim since 2015 and in Eastern Clallam County since 2000.
Pence has lived in the City of Sequim for over one year and is retired from a 33-year career in municipal government where he served as a public works director, director of housing and community development, and city administrator.
