Peter Condyles is the newest member of the Marysville City Council. The City Council made the selection following public interviews of six candidate finalists at its meeting on Monday, July 25. He was sworn in that evening.
Condyles began attending Marysville City Council meetings as a youth, studying local government over the years, and has attended about 100 Marysville City Council meetings in the past three years. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history with minors in public history and political science from Western Washington University.
“Peter is very well qualified and prepared,” Council President Kamille Norton said Monday evening. “He has a demonstrated commitment to good government and provides a youthful perspective that is very valuable.”
Mayor Jon Nehring remarked, “Nobody is better prepared. Peter has put a lot of time into obtaining knowledge of the city.”
Condyles is the president of the Marysville Historical Society, where he has been involved since 2014, and also serves on the board of the League of Snohomish County Heritage Organizations. He served on the Mayor’s Task Force on Growth Management and on the city’s Community Development Block Grant committee. He also chairs the Snohomish County Policy Advisory Board, which meets quarterly to make recommendations to the County Council on funding related to housing and homelessness.
A graduate of Leadership Snohomish County, Condyles works as a project manager for Toyer Strategic Advisors, an economic development and land use consulting firm.
Condyles will serve until Dec. 31, 2023. The seat will be open for the November 2023 General Election, and the person elected will fulfill the remainder of the original term ending Dec. 31, 2025. The position was vacated in June when former City Councilmember Jeff Vaughan resigned to move out of state after serving nearly 20 years on the Council.
City Council meetings will resume in September. The Council meets in a Work Session on the first Monday of each month and holds regular action meetings on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave., and are open to the public. You can also attend virtually via Zoom. Find details at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/264/City-Council.
