Fred Butler’s election to mayor left a vacancy on the Issaquah City Council and seven people want the job.
The candidates introduced themselves during 10-minute presentations at the Jan. 21 council meeting. The varied field offered far-ranging experience from the worlds of engineering, real estate, software development and communications.
The City Council expects to make a final decision to fill the vacancy at its Feb. 3 meeting. The chosen candidate will serve until the November 2015 election, when he or she can opt to run for election.
