Position 1 - Vacant

Councilman Ian Cope Position 2

Council Antony Chung Position 3

My name is Antony S. Chung. I attended Simpson Elementary and Montesano Jr/Sr High School as an young man and had the pleasure of graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in Geography, with a concentration in Geographic Information Systems and Economics. I have always had immense interest in economics, fisheries and real estate since I can remember.

My passion for joining the Montesano City Council is the hope of providing exemplary customer service to the City of Montesano by working with city council members to improve the quality of life, support planned growth, promote public health and maintain public trust, while supporting the surrounding economy with a more competitive infrastructure and a supportive business climate.

My skills are in retail sales, real estate, web-based advertising, customer service, and the hospitality industry. Currently, I am working as the Director of Operations for the Montesano GuestHouse Inn and Suites. I have served on the board for the Montesano Chamber of Commerce for a short time and I am currently on the board for the Grays Harbor Sport Fishing Coalition and an active member of the Coastal Conservation Association. I also work with students with special needs to provide them with technical employment skills to prepare them for life after high school.

Montesano is my home. I have lived here more than 18 years of my life and the success and well being of every patron in this town is important to me. I vow to be a voice of the people and represent the members of this great city well.

Sincerely,

Antony S. Chung

Councilman Dave Skaramuca Position 4

I consider myself a third generation Montesanoan. I was raised in Montesano, attended schools and graduated in 1980. My first 10 years of employment were spent as an automotive mechanic/machinist, then the next 18 years as lab technician in pulp mill. After a plant closure I attended college in Centralia and graduated in 2008 with a ATA in Civil Engineering. I am currently a carpenter/home builder. I feel my unique experience enables me to carryout my passion which is improving our parks, streets, and sidewalks.My vision for the future of Montesano is to preserve our character while keeping great schools and excellent police and fire departments.
