Councilor John Henry Steps Down
Sunnyside City Councilor John Henry today submitted his resignation, effective July 25, 2021.
Councilor Henry cited his plans to no longer reside in the City, which makes him ineligible to serve on Council. Councilor Henry represents District #1, which primarily consists of the neighborhoods north of the Yakima Valley Highway in Sunnyside.
Mayor Francisco Guerrero stated, “I appreciate Councilor Henry’s service and contributions to the residents of Sunnyside and wish him the best for his future plans.”
Council will take up discussion on steps for appointing a successor at upcoming meetings. Any appointee must reside in District#1 to be eligible.
