The terms of four Poulsbo city council positions will be expiring at the end of the year along with a port commissioner’s seat, and three seats on the North Kitsap School District Board of Directors. As a result, the City of Poulsbo will be hosting a candidates workshop as a sort of primer for any potential candidates looking to throw their respective hats into the ring.

Council members Kenneth Thomas, Connie Lord, Gary Nystul and Jeff McGinty will all have terms expiring in 2019. Port of Poulsbo commissioner Stephen Swann’s term will be expiring at the end of the year. North Kitsap School Board directors Jim Almond, Glen Robbins and Cindy Webster-Martinson will also have terms expiring at the end of the year.

Council members Thomas and Nystul have stated they will not be seeking re-election.

The 2019 Candidates Workshop will be held in the council chambers of Poulsbo City Hall Saturday April 20 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will include a panel of speakers offering helpful information on how citizens can become involved in local government. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
