City Council Changes 

Marc San Soucie Resigns, Edward Kimmi and John Dugger Join Council 

Marc San Soucie resigned from the City Council effective Aug. 31. San Soucie’s departure from City Council was already coming at the end of this year given term limits. He cited personal reasons for the decision. 

“Courtesy of our new charter and the term limits I strongly supported, this is my last year serving on the Beaverton City Council,” said San Soucie. “Seeing this coming for a while now, I have been preparing for ‘what’s next.” One of the main activities in my next set of endeavors begins in September. With wistfulness but not regret, I will make a slightly early departure from the City Council. I will leave with a sense of accomplishment, with some unfinished business but knowing that not all business can ever be finished.” 

San Soucie began his service on the City Council in 2008. During this time, he helped shape key initiatives, including transportation system improvements, water infrastructure, affordable housing, downtown development, the new City Charter, and much more. He previously served as a member of the Planning Commission. The City Council received San Soucie’s resignation from Council Position 5 at their Jun. 21 meeting. 

At their meeting on Jul. 19, the City Council appointed Councilor John Dugger to fill the remainder of the existing Council Position 5 term from Thursday, Sep. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 31. Councilor Dugger received the most votes for Position 5 during the May primary election and was already expected to join the City Council when confirmed during the November general election. His new term will begin Jan. 1, 2023. 

Councilor Edward Kimmi, Council Position 3 was sworn in during the Jun. 21 Council meeting and joined his fellow councilors immediately following. Council Position 3 – vacated last year by Mark Fagin – was elected to be filled during the May primary to serve the remaining three years of that term. 

Councilor Kimmi and Councilor Dugger will be sworn in on Tuesday, Sep. 6. 

Councilor Ashley Hartmeier-Prigg, Council Position 1; Kevin Teater, Council Position 2; and Councilor John Dugger, Council Position 5 will join the City Council when confirmed during the November 2022 general election and their terms begin Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023.
