Special Election Lincoln City

A special election for Ward 1 City Councilor will be held on Sept. 21, to fill the vacancy left by Diana Hinton, who resigned for family reasons in April.

Hinton said in her April 12 resignation letter the COVID-19 virus coupled with the Echo Mountain Fire led her and husband Joe to make the decision to be closer to family. She said family members had urged them to move closer so they could spend time together.

The special election will be for the remainder of Hinton’s term, which lasts until Dec. 31, 2024.

Citizens who have lived in Ward 1 for at least six months and are interested in the city councilor position can file an application with the City. The deadline is noon, July 19, 2021. Applications can be obtained by emailing the City Recorder or by visiting the City’s website. Deadline to file with the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office for inclusion in the Voter’s Pamphlet is July 26.

Lincoln City’s City Councilors meet on the second and fourth Mondays each month at 6 p.m. A councilor’s job is to review materials in preparation of meetings, attend additional meetings as needed, and corresponding with citizens. The City Council also governs the Urban Renewal Agency.

“Serving Lincoln City and my community has been a great pleasure and honor,” Hinton said. “I will miss all that entails. I will greatly miss our friends, city staff and volunteers, community members, and the beautiful environment in which we live.”
