Winlock City Council has not one alleged illegal city councilmember, but three! Winlock City Councilmember Jodie Curtis has not been sworn in by the City of Winlock. She was re-appointed on March 19, but the city failed to give Curtis her oath of office within 90 days of her re-appointment. Due to the city failing to keep an eye on the basic requirements of a city council member, it will be up to the Lewis County Board of County Commissioners to re-appoint Curtis again. She is not the only alleged illegal councilmember, Winlock is not the primary residence for Trig and Barbara Pedersen. This is a requirement to serve on the Winlock City Council.

This internship began when I was only sixteen and a junior at the Napavine High School. I was a shy and timid student, working on my school projects and studying in my spare time. I had to step out of my comfort zone to interview students and staff, and travel to school activities. Inevitably, I grew to like the spontaneity and adventure the Town Crier Newspaper provides. I have been granted countless opportunities to meet new people and most importantly, experiment with creative writing.
Recently, Winlock has seen a lot of issues and they seem to be continuing. Issues like no permits for the waterline extension, a lawsuit by a Toledo Police officer, failing infrastructure, and now we have an incomplete Comprehensive Plan. Comprehensive plans are part of future planning for any municipality and recently the City of Winlock completed theirs, but did not complete it per the requirements of the State of Washington Revised Code of Washington (RCW) or the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) which gives the laws for the state. This plan affects not just the City of Winlock but includes those who live in the Urban Growth Area (UGA).
