Robert Severns

photo of Mayor Severns I was born, raised and completed high school in a small city in southwest Washington.  After high school, I moved to Ellensburg (a slightly larger city) to complete my Bachelors Degree in Business/Administrative Management, and began my professional career there, in Title Insurance and Escrow.  My career has spanned 42 years, with the last 38 in Oak Harbor and I love it here!

In March 2008, I was honored to receive an appointment to serve as Councilmember -
position 4 for the City of Oak Harbor, after Sheilah Crider resigned her position. 

My education, training and learned skills as a private business  owner and manager, will, I believe, help me contribute to solid, sound decisions for the citizens of Oak Harbor.  In order to reach my goals to protect the quality of life in Oak Harbor, which includes strong schools and a healthy economy, I encourage the ideas and input of staff and citizens alike.

During the past 42 years, I have enjoyed actively serving our community on several volunteer boards and committees:

·         LEOFF I Board Member

·         City of Oak Harbor Civil Service Board

·         Limited Practice Law Board - appointed by the Washington State Supreme Court

·         Greater Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce - served as director and in all officer positions

·         Oak Harbor High School Business Advisory Committee

·         Navy League - life member and former board member

·         Oak Harbor Rotary - served as director and in all officer positions

·         Child Abuse Protection Foundation - Board of Directors

·         Island County Economic Development Council

·         Oak Harbor Downtown Development Committee - for Chamber of Commerce

·         Oak Harbor Main Street - Interim Board of Directors

·         Island County Board of Health

·         Island County Council of Governments

·         Island County Law & Justice Council
