Mike Sando resigns Enumclaw City Council seat citing work responsibility and disagreement with council direction

Former Enumclaw City Councilman resigns seat

Former City Councilman Mike Sando resigned from the council Monday, March 27.

Sando cited work responsibilities and a disagreement with the direction of the City Council.

At the opening of the council meeting Monday Mayor Liz Reynolds read an email from Sando resigning his seat.

“After much thought and reflection, I have decided to step down from my seat on the Enumclaw City Council,” Sando wrote.

Sando wrote that after accepting a “teaching position at West Auburn High School” his work responsibilities have increased.

He also wrote, “This coupled with the direction the council is taking leads me to believe that it would be best for me to step aside at this time. It is troubling to participate in a process that ignores responsible discourse in the pursuit of narrow and individual interests.”

Sando was in his first term on the council, which ends in December.
