Tumwater council member to resign

April 1st, 2013 by Ken

Betsy Spath, a four-year incumbent member of the Tumwater City Council will announce at Tuesday evening’s council meeting, that she is resigning her seat.

Spath has recently retired, sold her home and is moving to Arizona with her husband.

She is the second member of the Tumwater council to recently resign.  A few weeks ago, Judi Hoefling also resigned her council seat.

Spath said her greatest accomplishment while on the Tumwater council was protecting the rights of city residents who live in manufactured home parks.

It is expected the council will start its search for a replacement quickly.  Since Spath was finishing her term this year, her replacement will have to run for election to the seat in the fall.

Spath said that anyone who is outspoken should run for public office and have the opportunity to see the difficulties and the challenges involved in being part of the solution.
