Plymouth’s Johnson Appointed to Met Council, Will Resign Council Seat
Judy Johnson has served on the Plymouth City Council for more than 20 years, including four years as mayor. She will officially resign from her seat before being sworn in to serve on the Metropolitan Council. Governor Tim Walz appointed Johnson to represent District 1, which includes Plymouth and Maple Grove.
Walz also appointed Reva Chamblis to represent District 2, which includes Osseo, Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center.
What’s next for Plymouth City Council?
Johnson will submit her formal resignation before being sworn in to the Met Council on March 6. Under the Plymouth City Charter, the council will appoint someone to fill the remainder of Council Member Johnson’s term.
The City Charter requires that the council declare a vacancy once it receives a council member’s resignation. In this case, the council will declare the vacancy at its March 12 meeting. At that time, they will discuss the process for appointment and the timeline. Once that is known, the council will publicize the opening and seek applicants.
