Sherwood City Councilor Dan King has found a house outside the city limits and will resign his seat effective July 1, he announced during a June 6 Sherwood City Council meeting. King apologized for his short tenure this time around -- he was re-elected in November – saying he didn't plan it this way but there are plans to sell the house he is renting.
"I absolutely did not plan on moving at this time," said King, who has spent a total of 6 1/2 years on the council.
King served on the Sherwood City Council from 2005 to 2009. A former member of the Sherwood Planning Commission and the Sherwood Parks Board, he works as a Multnomah County Sheriff's deputy in the corrections division. In the fall of 2014, he was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Robyn Folsom before winning election in March 2015. He won his current seat during an election last fall.
An election will be held in November with applications accepted from the day a vacancy is declared (tentatively July 11), until Aug. 31.
