LAKE STEVENS— The City announced a Council vacancy this morning and encouraged residents to consider filling the Lake Stevens City Council term won by Shawn Frederick. J425 should probably volunteer Mike Anderton for the role and have him live blog the goings- on. The Hall of Famer is a shoe-in should he apply.
That said, if you wanna apply, send a letter and anything else you think is helpful to Kelly Chelin by 5pm November 30.
