Snohomish County Councilmember Stephanie Wright Thursday was selected as the new chair of the Community Transit Board of Directors, replacing Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, who will remain on the board. Stanwood Mayor Leonard Kelley was named vice chair and Mukilteo Mayor Jennifer Gregerson was named secretary by their peers on the transit board.
Wright represents the County Council’s Third District, which includes Edmonds.
“I look forward to working closely with Councilmember Wright as we continue to bring new transit service to Snohomish County as part of the solution to regional traffic congestion,” said Community Transit CEO Emmett Heath.
