Post Date:05/01/2018 2:54 PM

The City of Maple Valley City Council has appointed Syd Dawson to fill the vacant Position 5 seat. Dawson replaces Megan Sheridan, who resigned from City Council in February.

As a 19-year resident of Maple Valley, Dawson has served on the Highlands at Lake Wilderness Homeowners Association Board and the Tahoma School District Elementary School Boundary Committee. He currently serves on the Maple Valley Historical Society Board of Directors and is the President of the Greater Maple Valley Community Center Board.
