City Council Member Kathy Downer

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  I have been married for 49 years and have 4 adult children.  During the time my children were in high school, our family hosted 8 foreign exchange students.

Education:  A.A. LVN Nursing 1972, A.A. R.N. 1980

Employment:  I was a nurse for 43 years and retired in 2014.  I was on the City Council in Marietta, Ohio from 2014 to 2019 where I was chairwoman of the Streets Committee and a member of Police/Fire and Water/Sewer Committees.  I was council liaison to Main Street, Traffic, Stormwater, Brick Street and Alternative Transportation Commissions. 

Volunteer Work/Military Service:  I taught for the Red Cross, kept score for my children's sports, volunteered for my church, was a member of the PTO and was a disaster shelter volunteer.

Hobbies/Interests:  Reading (especially about home design), watching mystery shows, and traveling the world (I have been to National Parks in all 50 states!).

What I love about Sequim is the people, the festivals, the mountains and the beaches.  I hope to restore some balance to our City Council.  I am looking forward to taking care of the city businesses with ordinances and resolutions that follow our State law.
