Sally Clark resigns from City Council, takes job at UW

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Sally Clark resigned from the Seattle City Council April 2, and announced she will take a new job with the University of Washington beginning May 18. Her last day on the Council will be April 12.

In February Clark said she would not seek reelection to the City Council seat she has held since 2006.

The UW announced that Clark has been appointed Director of Regional and Community Relations for the school.

In that position, Clark will work with surrounding neighborhoods, civic groups, and local governments on projects of mutual interest.

"The Office of Regional & Community Relations works to build collaborative relationships between these groups through information sharing, and looks for new opportunities to match the UW's academic capital with needs in the region and community," the university said in a statement.

In addition to her new duties, Clark will also get a raise. She will make $155,000 working for the UW, about $35,000 more than she did as a City Council member.

"I am thrilled to welcome Sally to the University," UW Vice President for External Affairs Randy Hodgins said in a statement.

"She brings a wealth of leadership experience to the office not only from her time on the Seattle City Council, but also in her neighborhood and economic development work. All of us are looking forward to the creative ideas and energy she will bring to the university."

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray praised Clark in a statement.

"On behalf of the City, our employees and our residents, my heartfelt thanks to Sally Clark for her years of service to the people of Seattle," Murray wrote.

"I've enjoyed working with Sally for years on neighborhood issues, civil rights, economic development and affordable housing. Her commitment to our community will live on in her work at the University of Washington. I look forward to a continuing and fruitful partnership with Sally."

"2015 will be a busy year at the Council," the mayor added, "from supporting housing affordability to renewing our transportation levy and rewriting our Comprehensive Plan. I look forward to working with the sitting Council and its new appointed member on a very full agenda in the months ahead."

City Council President Tim Burgess also praised Clark, who preceded him as Council President.

"Councilmember Clark has been a dedicated, hard-working public official for the people of Seattle," he wrote. "I deeply appreciate her thoughtful approach to policy development, disarming leadership style, and sharp wit. She tackled projects of incredible complexity with patience, diligence, and grace. She is a trustworthy colleague and a good friend. Sally will be missed at City Hall."

Burgess also promised to release information about the process and timeline for filling the vacant seat on the City Council. Clark herself was originally appointed to the Council when Jim Compton resigned from his position.
