Mayor Matt Larson is currently serving his fourth term as Snoqualmie's mayor. He has held many offices in Snoqualmie in the past including Mayor Pro Tem, City Council Member, chair of the Planning Commission, and Parks Board member. As an Advanced Certified Municipal Leader -- a certification earned through the Association of Washington Cities -- Mayor Larson enjoys serving in leadership roles in local and regional capacities.
“My wife and I have lived in Snoqualmie for nearly 20 years where we raised our four children. We consider Snoqualmie to be the most exceptional place we have ever lived and enjoy having fifteen members of our immediate and extended family reside in the Snoqualmie Valley.
“In addition to my municipal experience, I spent five years directing a large non-profit youth program and have experience running a small residential architecture business. This background has given me a unique perspective on the amenities and resources required to support the youth of our community, understand city planning, build private/public partnerships, and relate to the challenges of local small businesses and non-profit organizations.
“Serving as your mayor has been one of the most humbling, challenging and rewarding experiences of my life.”
