If you’ve been thinking about taking on an important leadership role within the city of Issaquah, the time has come to take the next step. Candidates must file for election by May 15.
The terms for three Issaquah City Council positions are set to expire at the end of the year — council position No. 2 (Nina Milligan), council position No. 4 (Joshua Schaer) and council position No. 6 (Paul Winterstein).
Milligan and Schaer announced last week that they will not seek re-election.

Apollo students learn real-life lessons in Rocket City
About a dozen little heads peered out from a row of oversized cardboard boxes, directing their attention toward a classroom door at Apollo Elementary School.
Moments later, a line of third-graders from a visiting class entered the room, and the quiet anticipation was quickly replaced with the busy wheeling and dealing of a marketplace.
Such is life in Rocket City, a bustling simulated town, marked by cardboard shops and led by an elected student mayor in Lauren Molnar’s third-grade class.

Three Issaquah School District levies will come before voters Feb. 11. After a public hearing during its Dec. 16 regular meeting, the Issaquah City Council unanimously voted to support the ballot propositions.
Superintendent Ron Thiele and Issaquah School Board member Anne Moore gave a description of how much the levies would cost the taxpayers and how the district would spend the money.
“These three levies are absolutely critical to the level of service in our schools,” Moore said. “We have excellent Issaquah schools that are part of the community. It’s really a win-win for the city and the schools to help maintain the school level that we have.”
