Update: Eleven apply for Washougal Council Position 5

Interviews will occur Feb. 7

A former mayoral candidate is among the people seeking to fill a vacant position on the Washougal City Council.

Earl Scott, a retired Camas-Washougal Fire Department captain, is one of 11 people who submitted completed applications to City Clerk/Finance Director Jennifer Forsberg prior to the Tuesday, 5 p.m. deadline.

The other candidates are Steve Henderson, David Jolivette, Kathryn Hodge Kramer, Ray Kutch, Daniel Lyman, John McConnaughey, Richard Reynolds, Karen Rezabek, Julie Russell and Paul Slot.

A 12th person brought in an application Tuesday, at 4:57 p.m. He has since withdrawn his name.

A 13th interested person was disqualified from consideration, because he lives outside the city limits of Washougal.

Forsberg, who has worked for the city since 2010, remembers seven as being the most candidates for one City Council seat.

A special City Council meeting to interview candidates for Position 5 will be held Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 6 p.m., in the council chambers at City Hall, 1701 ā€œCā€ St. It was originally scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., but due to the large number of applicants it was rescheduled to begin an hour earlier.

Council member Jennifer McDaniel resigned, effective Jan. 31. She has moved to Camas.

This information was originally reported Jan. 31, at 6:21 p.m.

Additional information will be in the Thursday, Feb. 2 print edition of the Camas-Washougal Post-Record.
