Councilmember Davina Duerr Announces Resignation to Focus on State Legislative Role

Councilmember Davina Duerr

May 18, 2022 – In last night’s City Council meeting, Councilmember Davina Duerr announced her resignation from Bothell City Council effective June 1, 2022.  Per state law, the City Council must appoint someone to serve the remainder of this unexpired Council term, which is December 31, 2023.  The process is governed by RCW 42.12.070 and we will share more details on the application and appointment process soon.   

Councilmember Duerr was first elected to Bothell City Council in 2015 and was reelected for a second term in 2019.  Davina has served the Bothell Community in multiple civic roles.  Prior to election, she chaired the Bothell Landmark Preservation Board and was vice president of the Northshore Schools Foundation. She co-founded and co-chaired the foundation’s M.I.L.K. Money campaign to raise money for children experiencing homelessness in the Northshore School District.  

In 2018, Councilmember Duerr was appointed to serve as State Representative for the 1st Legislative District and last night emphasized her desire and excitement to continue serving the Bothell community in this role.  

“Serving as a Bothell City Councilmember and a Washington State legislator simultaneously has been an honor and a challenge. I stayed on City Council longer than expected out of a sense of duty to my community,” stated Councilmember Duerr during the meeting.  “Thank you to the residents of Bothell for trusting me and the honor of serving you these past 6 ½ years. These have been some of the most fulfilling of my life. Bothell, I will always have your back. I will still be working for you.”  

Councilmember Duerr expressed warm gratitude to her fellow Councilmembers and city staff last night, noting her appreciation for their support and hard work. “I wasn’t sure when this day would come but now feel the time is right, because we have a new city manager on his way and dedicated staff to keep the wheels well-oiled and a capable, caring council,” expressed Duerr. 

The City looks forward to working with Councilmember Duerr in her role as Representative and will continue to work collaboratively with her on the many issues that are so important to Bothell.
