BREMERTON — Bremerton City Council has appointed Angela Woods as city clerk.
Woods is currently the clerk for the city of Fife. She previously worked for the city of Bremerton as a senior office assistant in the Department of Public Works and Utilities, 2006-14.
The city clerk is hired by the mayoral administration but it is one of many positions subject to council approval. Woods’ annual salary will be set at Rate 2 for the position of city clerk in the 2018 Management and Professional Salary Plan — $82,855.92 — which was also subject to council approval.
At a special meeting June 25, five council members — Pat Sullivan, Kevin Gorman, Tony Hillman, Richard Huddy and Eric Younger — assented. Council members Leslie Daugs and Michael Goodnow were absent.
During an interview with the council, Woods cited her time in the city as a motivating factor in applying for the job.
“I’d love to return to Bremerton,” Woods said.
Woods has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California Santa Barbara and is a certified municipal clerk. After leaving Bremerton in 2014, she spent a year and a half as the assistant to the CEO/deputy clerk of the board at Pierce Transit. Woods then worked as the deputy city clerk in Fife under former Bremerton city clerk Carol Etgen. She became the city clerk in 2017.
