  • Written by David B. Clark
The city of Woodinville has a new Mayor: James Evans. Though Mayor Evans’ position may come as a sudden development in the midst of the last City Council meeting, his involvement with the city is anything but new. Evans was first elected to the Woodinville City Council in November of 2013 where he has remained on Council and held the position  of Deputy Mayor in January 2014 to December 2015 and then again in January 2016 to December 2017 prior to his penultimate victory on June 5.
Because of former Mayor Bernie Talmas’ seemingly sudden decision to step down during the June 5 meeting, council voted to elect a new mayor immediately. Mayor Evans procured the majority of the votes.
