The choices for the Washougal City Council Position No. 5 seat feature an incumbent who is also serving as mayor pro tem and a woman who has lived most of her life in Washougal.
Incumbent Jennifer McDaniel, 45, has lived in Washougal for six years, while challenger Niki Anderson, 36, grew up in Washougal.
“In the last 12 to 13 years, Washougal has grown,” McDaniel said during a recent interview. “We have more than doubled in size, with new people. Though I appreciate that she is a multi-generational resident, I don’t think that necessarily qualifies someone to represent the citizens of Washougal on the City Council — as a sole qualifier.
