Posted on 01/07/2022
Mayor Newing and Deputy Mayor SherlockAt the January 4, 2022 meeting, Newcastle City Council re-elected Linda Newing to serve as mayor, and elected Ariana Sherlock to serve as deputy mayor. Every two years, the Council elects a Mayor and Deputy Mayor. The Mayor directs the conduct of Council meetings and represents the Council at other meetings and events, and the Deputy Mayor serves in the Mayor's absence.

This is the first time in Newcastle history that both of these leadership positions have been filled by women, and it comes at a time when all three of our Washington State District 41 legislators are women as well. Mayor Newing and Deputy Mayor Sherlock join Senator Lisa Wellman, Representative Tana Senn, and Representative My-Lin Thai in providing local elected leadership to our community.

Join us in congratulating Mayor Newing and Deputy Mayor Sherlock!
