Nikki Torres

City Councilmember Nikki Torres, who represents District 3, submitted her resignation effective May 31. Torres is running for the Washington State Senate in the 15th District.

Torres said, “As I have recently moved into the newly redistricted 15th Legislative District, just outside of my City Council district, and have concluded that it is appropriate I immediately resign my council position and focus on my bid to represent Pasco and the all of the 15th in Olympia.”

Torres was elected to represent District 3 in 2021 and has spent the last 40 years in the community. She is currently a Strategic Partnerships Manager for Western Governors University and is a member of the Association of Washington Business Grassroots Alliance.

The City Council will discuss the appointment process for a replacement at the June 6 Council meeting. The appointee for District 3 would stand for reelection in 2023, per state law.
