Jon Martin is a busy man. The new Ocean Shores mayor (he was appointed by his City Council colleagues last week after the death of Crystal Dingler) is director of operations for five McDonald’s restaurants, owner of Martin Bruni Liquor and, since his July appointment, also a PUD commissioner.
The North Beach News asked him if he had concerns about having enough time for the position, which he confirmed is technically a part-time job (it pays $12,000 per year). His answer: “This is not a full time position with the addition of the City Administrator the plan was for it to be part time. Which the salary is reflective of a part time position. Since I have not served in this position before I do not know the time commitment. I do believe all other mayors in Grays Harbor are part time.”
