The Snoqualmie City Council appointed Chelley Patterson to City Council Position no. 2, which was previously held by Jeff MacNichols. He resigned in May due to a family relocation outside of Snoqualmie. Patterson was one of six Snoqualmie residents who applied for the position and were interviewed by council members. By a unanimous vote of the council, Patterson will serve as council member until the term expiration of December 31, 2015. She may choose to run for election in 2015 to extend her term by another four years.

Patterson is a 13-year resident of Snoqualmie and has served on the city parks board for more than six years. She also serves on the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA Board of Directors and the Encompass Board of Directors.

“It is exciting to think about the possibilities for Snoqualmie in the years ahead and I am ready to play a more significant role in shaping the destiny of our city,” states Patterson. “I care deeply about the place and people of Snoqualmie and making it the best it can be.” She was sworn in July 28.
