SEATTLE – The Lynnwood mayor’s office may cease to exist if a measure before voters passes.
The Daily Herald reports Lynnwood residents will vote on Proposition 1 Nov. 8. If passed, it would eliminate the position of mayor and create a position for a professional city manager.
Embattled mayor Don Gough would be out of a job, and would become an eighth member of the Lynnwood City Council. But he’d also take an enormous pay cut – from $95,617 per year working full time to $19,800 as a part-time council member.
The council would hire and supervise the new city manager.
