Five file for seat on Sherwood City Council
Five Sherwood residents have applied to run for a seat on the Sherwood City Council to fill out the term of Councilor Dan King who resigned July 1.
By Thursday's 5 p.m. deadline, Renee Brouse, Michael Conn, Russell Griffin, Burt Mooney and Doug Scott had all thrown their hats into the ring for a position to be decided in the Nov. 7 election.
Brouse most recently finished a term on the Sherwood City Council at the end of December. She served as executive director of the Sherwood YMCA for 10 years before recently being named executive director of the Good Neighbor Center in Tigard.
Conn is a high school principal and has an occupational background as a school administrator and teacher. He holds a master's degree in special education.
Griffin is a technical trainer who is vice chairman of the Sherwood Planning Commission and has served on the Sherwood Cultural Arts Commission and is active in the Sherwood Foundation for the Arts as well.
Mooney is part of a management team for a laser measurement company. He holds an associate's degree in laser measurement from San Jose City College. Mooney has asked that his name appear as Burt (Moon Beam) Mooney on the ballot.
Scott is a software product developer and a small business owner. He has served on the Sherwood Charter Review Committee, SURPAC (Sherwood's urban renewal district committee) and was on the Sherwood School District Boundary Adjustment Committee.
Meanwhile, Brouse, Conn, Griffin and Scott have also applied to be named by the council to a temporary appointment to fill out the remainder of King's term. In addition, Kurt Studer, a director of quality for Curtiss-Wright, Inc., and member of the Sherwood Budget Committee, has applied for the appointment as well as John S. Davis IV, a sustainability supervisor at Dave's Killer Bread, who also served in the U.S. Army. A date for the council to make that appointment has not been set.
