OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Seattle Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda was recently reelected to its Board of Directors.

“I am pleased to continue serving on AWC’s Board of Directors to advance city priorities,” Mosqueda said. “Cities are the governments closest to the people and are at the forefront of creating local solutions for local problems. I’m eager to continue working with the board to address many of our pressing matters around health, human services, housing, and public safety.”

Councilmember Mosqueda fills the board’s District 11 along with Seattle Councilmember Sally Bagshaw. The City of Seattle, as Washington’s largest city, holds two positions as a single-city district on the AWC Board. Mosqueda first joined the board in 2018.

Mosqueda was elected to Seattle City Council in 2017 and chairs the city’s committee on Housing, Health, Energy and Workers’ Rights.

The AWC Board of Directors is the association’s governing body. The board is comprised of 25 directors, 23 of whom are mayors or city councilmembers from Washington cities or towns, and two non-elected city officials who also serve as the president and past president of the Washington City/County Management Association.

AWC serves its members through advocacy, education and services. Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington's cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with regulatory agencies. Membership is voluntary. However, AWC consistently maintains 100 percent participation from Washington’s 281 cities and towns. AWC also provides training, data and publications, and programs such as the AWC Employee Benefit Trust, AWC Risk Management Service Agency, AWC Workers’ Comp Retro, AWC Drug and Alcohol Consortium, and AWC GIS Consortium.
