Eleven vie for appointment to Sherwood City Council

Six of those also are running for election Nov. 4

Eleven residents have applied for a possible appointment to a seat on the Sherwood City Council.

Naomi Belov, Anthony Bevel, Dean Boswell, Renee Brouse, Beth Cooke, Jennifer Harris, Jennifer Kuiper, Sally Robinson, Ross Schultz, Nancy Taylor and Daniel King are all vying for a position left vacant following the resignation of Councilor Robyn Folsom.

Folsom left at the end of September because she moved outside Sherwood city limits.

If many of those names sound familiar, it’s because they are.

Boswell, Harris, Kuiper, Robinson, Schultz and King are all running for one of three open seats in the Nov. 4 council election. Also running in that race are Bill Butterfield, Paul Lindsley and Bill Millington.

Folsom’s term expires in January 2017. As such, the city will hold a special election in March to determine who Sherwood voters want to take Folsom’s former seat for the next two years.

Likely interview dates for the council appointments are Nov. 12 and Nov. 15.

Previously, the council had talked about making an appointment to Folsom’s seat at the Nov. 18 council meeting.

Meanwhile, the face of the council will change again soon after the upcoming election when one of two council members – Krisanna Clark or Linda Henderson – will become mayor, forcing one to relinquish her council seat.
