Bainbridge council picks Deets for deputy mayor post

Bainbridge Councilman Joe Deets is the new deputy mayor for Bainbridge Island.

The Bainbridge Island City Council chose its new deputy mayor at its meeting Tuesday.

Councilwoman Leslie Schneider nominated Deets, a first-year North Ward councilman for the post, with Councilwoman Rasham Nassar seconding the nomination.

The vote for Deets was unanimously, on a 6-0 vote with Deets abstaining.

Deets takes over the deputy mayor post from Councilwoman Sarah Blossom, who has been deputy mayor for the past year.

The position carries a four-month term, which was shortened from the previous six month length of service so more council members could be cycled in and out of the duty.

“I look forward to learning more about council work,” Deets said.

Council members thanked Blossom after the vote for her service as deputy mayor, and for completing two back-to-back terms in the post.

“I’d also like to thank Sarah for doing double duty,” said Councilman Ron Peltier. “And I really appreciate it.”
