The Anacortes City Council on Monday confirmed Mayor Gere’s appointment of Darcy Swetnam as the City Attorney. She began working at the City last May as the Assistant City Attorney and will begin her assignment as the City Attorney on January 1 of next year.
Until taking a position at the city, she worked with attorney Alan Souders. She joined that law office in 2008 upon returning to Anacortes following her graduate education and legal work in Idaho and California. She specialized in the areas of elder law, estate planning, property, probate, and business and litigation support.
After receiving her law degree from Chapman University, she taught law school in Southern California in the areas of tort law and real property. A graduate of Anacortes High School in 1997, Darcy has many ties to the community and has joined an active network of those supporting families and seniors in Western Washington.
