The Kent City Council in Washington has unanimously elected Indo-American Satwinder Kaur as its president for a two-year term. The seven-member council is the legislative body for the City of Kent, and besides establishing policies and regulations, it approves financial expenditures and the city’s biennial budget.
Kaur will work closely with the mayor to see what kind of support the council will give to issues and proposals, apart from serving as the official spokesperson for the council.
After Kaur’s election in a February 6 meeting, Boyce said, “You’ve got some little shoes to fill. I’m sure you will do a great job and we are here to support you and make sure you are very successful.”
Bill Boyce nominated Kaur for the top position, and Kaur will carry forward as his successor in the new role.
Appreciating Boyce for mentoring her, Kaur said: “As I start this I know all of us have the same goal of serving the community and making sure Kent is a better place for all of us.”
As per Kent City Council website, She likes hiking at Clark Lake Park, trying cuisine from different countries, participating in the Adopt-a-Street program with the Sikh community, witnessing volunteer contributions from different people and organizations, helping others, and seeing that different places of worship in Kent are open to supporting all human beings.
