District 7 - Eric Younger

Eric Younger represents Bremerton City Council District 7 which includes Kitsap Lake, a portion of Kitsap Way, and the area reaching south towards Gorst. Providing boundaries for the district are the Kitsap County neighborhoods called Rocky Point, West Hills, and Navy Yard City.

Eric was appointed by the Council Members on May 2, 2001 to fill a seat vacated when the elected Council Member resigned; and then was elected in the fall of that year to fill the remainder of the term through 2003 (2- ½ years total). Following an 8-year gap, Eric was elected again in 2012 to a 2-year term when the City of Bremerton transitioned from a 9-Member, to a 7-Member City Council; and has since been elected two more times to serve 4-year terms beginning in 2014 and 2018. Eric served as Council President from 2016 – 2020.

In 2021, Eric is Chair for the Public Works Committee; and Vice-Chair for the Finance, Investment & Parking Committee.

Eric earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History (University of Minnesota) and a Masters Degree in Business Administration (Eastern Michigan University). He moved to Bremerton in 1997 and is a Certified Public Accountant.

As a Council Member, Eric strives to maximize taxpayer dollars by providing better, more cost-efficient government services with an emphasis on customer service (the City of Bremerton works for you). He is especially interested in improving the condition of City streets and reviewing existing ordinances and code enforcement efforts so that neighborhood problems can be better addressed.
