Carolyn Moulton, co-owner of BikeSpot, was sworn in as the city's newest Council member Monday night to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Liz Lovelett.

Moulton will fill in until the Nov. 5 election for the right to serve the remainder of Lovelett's Council term, which ends at the end of 2021. Moulton's interim appointment will last until after the results of the November election are certified. The filing deadline to run for the City Council seat is May 13.

Lovelett was appointed in February to the state Senate from the 40th District.

Moulton is currently a member of the city's Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee. She had also served on a land trust on Orcas Island.

In a written statement supporting her candidacy, Moulton wrote, “My highest priority as council member would be maintaining our city’s unique character while developing the infrastructure and support services that are vital to our community. I wholeheartedly support the city top legislative priorities for 2019: our community youth center, our municipal broadband project and the enhancement of our trails systems. I am especially passionate about non-motorized transportation as a path to environmental, human and economic health.”
