Gig Harbor City Council member Jeni Woock announced in a letter to constituents that she will not run for re-election in 2025.

Woock will remain on the council through the end of her term at the end of 2025.

“While Gig Harbor does not have term limits, I am a supporter of terms limits,” Woock wrote, “and that’s why I am making room for a new council member.”

Woock was first elected to the council in 2017, when 56.15% of voters picked her over Rick Offner. She won re-election with 73.22% of the vote in 2021 against Robert Wiles.

Woock told constituents in her letter that she made the early announcement so that possible successors would have plenty of time to consider campaigning for the job.

The Gig Harbor City Council typically meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. It also meets for study sessions at 3 p.m. on some Thursdays.
