Coffee with the Mayor

Please join Mayor William armacost for informal conversations!

The Sequim Coffee with the Mayor program was developed as a forum for the Mayor to have the opportunity to meet informally with anyone in the community that has a question, comment, or concern regarding the City.  The intent of the meeting is to discuss issues specific to the City of Sequim. The City is organized under a Council-Manager form of government, which means that Council’s role is to set policy, and no one councilor has any more power or authority than another. As such, any response to questions reflecting the personal opinion of the Mayor or any other individual councilor do not reflect any policy positions of the Sequim City Council or the organization.

Traditionally the meetings took place once a month at a local restaurant.   May 2020  through April 2021 the meetings took place through a live call-in format on KSQM FM 91.5 Radio, because of the inability to meet in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
