Council Members


Position: Mayor
Name: Kathy Bohnet
     I grew up in Yakima Washington. I met my Wilson Creek wheat farmer husband Harvey through friends while I was a student at WSU. We were married in 1960 and I moved to Wilson Creek. I have now lived in the area forty-six years. We lived for thirty years on our farm north of town. I was an active farm wife driving a truck or combine during harvest and doing any thing else that needed doing.
     I have served on the school board, in many ag related positions and held many presbyterian church offices. I have especially enjoyed working with youth both at the school and the church. I am the mother of four and the grandmother of seven.
     My interests are gardening, reading, history, antiques and travel.
     I was elected Mayor in November of 1999. I consider it an honor to serve the people of Wilson Creek as their Mayor.
