Snyder stepping down from Spokane City Council

jon-snyderCouncilman Jon Snyder announced yesterday that he has decided to leave the Spokane City Council in favor of a position with the Governor’s office. Snyder has been selected to be Inslee’s policy advisory for outdoor recreation and economic development, the first to hold the new position.

The new job seems like a natural fit for Snyder, the founder of the monthly Northwest outdoor recreational magazine Out There Monthly. This position is intended to expand Washington’s already robust state parks and outdoor recreational programs, strategizing ways to create new jobs and increase participation in these programs.

Snyder held a position on the City Council for six years, representing Spokane’s 2nd district. In an interview regarding the announcement, the Councilman claimed he would be bragging about Spokane throughout his new position. “We’ve kind of solved the riddle that a lot of communities are trying to, which is, how do you get people into the outdoors very closely to where they live? Well within 10 minutes of anywhere in town, you’ve got hiking, biking, fishing, camping, and all sorts of things.”

Jon Snyder is an INBA member, as well as his legislative assistant Blaine Stum, also chair of INBA’s Public Policy Committee, who announced over social media that he would apply for the vacant Council seat Stum commented that he “would love to have the opportunity to continue serving my community by taking on the role of Councilmember.”
