Bob Sternoff abruptly resigns from Kirkland City Council

Bob Sternoff, a Kirkland City Council member since 2005, has resigned following a court’s appointment of a receiver to represent the interests of his creditors.

In a letter addressed to Mayor Joan McBride and City Manager Kurt Triplett, Sternoff gave no reason for his resignation, instead simply writing, “Effective this date I hereby resign my position as a Kirkland City Council Member.” City officials announced the resignation Tuesday.

The council will discuss the process for filling the sudden vacancy next Tuesday.

McBride said in a statement Sternoff’s “contributions to the successful annexation of Finn Hill, North Juanita, and Kingsgate, the passage of two parks bonds, and his regional representation of Kirkland were extremely valuable to the community. He has the Council’s best wishes and respect for making what had to be a very difficult decision.”

King County Superior Court Commissioner  appointed a receiver March 6 to take charge of Sternoff’s assets for the benefit of creditors.  Sternoff’s council biography says he owns and manages several real estate development companies.
