Beaverton City Councilor Announces Resignation
Fagin cites personal reasons

Beaverton City Councilor Mark Fagin has announced his resignation from the Beaverton City Council effective Jan. 1, 2022. Councilor Fagin cited personal reasons for his decision.

Councilor Fagin began his service on the City Council in 2013 and before being elected was a member of the Planning Commission, the Civic Plan Steering Committee, and the Visioning Advisory Committee. He was the founding chairperson of the Visioning Advisory Committee.

Councilor Fagin has influenced countless projects.

“It has been an honor to serve the community as a Beaverton City Councilor,” said Councilor Mark Fagin. “My family and business are growing, and by stepping down now, the city can hold an election for my seat this May, along with the three other positions that will be up for election. This was a difficult decision; this experience has been very rewarding. I am proud of the improvements made in the last decade and the projects in the works give me confidence that the city is on a good path. I look forward to watching the progress as Beaverton continues to evolve.”

"I'm thankful to Councilor Fagin for his many years of impactful service," said Mayor Beaty. "Making the decision to step down is never easy, but I honor Councilor Fagin's commitment to his family."

The City Council accepted Councilor Fagin’s resignation of Council Position 3 at their Dec. 14 meeting.

The Council is considering options for replacement, which may include appointment of an Interim City Councilor to fill the vacant seat. A public election to fill the remainder of the Council Position 3 will occur in May 2022. The remainder of the existing Beaverton City Council Position 3 term is through Dec. 31, 2024.

The Beaverton City Council was expanded to seven members under the city's new voter-approved Charter that went into effect Jan. 1, 2021.

The other members of the Beaverton City Council are Lacey Beaty (Mayor), Ashley Hartmeier-Prigg (Council Position 1), Laura Mitchell (Council Position 2), Allison Tivnon (Council Position 4), Marc San Soucie (Council Position 5) and Nadia Hasan (Council Position 6).
