Citizen of the Year
Manzanita Citizen of the Year 2020
The overwhelming choice of the selection committee, Leila Salmon served several years on the Manzanita City Council, and was a member of numerous city and county committees, as well as area non-profit organizations.
She was a board member of the Pine Grove Community Center and the Rinehart Clinic, and a founding member of the Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay. She also served on the Tillamook County Futures Council and the Tillamook County Budget Committee.
Leila frequently lent her skills as a facilitator to lead brainstorming and problem-solving meetings on important public topics. One nomination described her as “a wise and gentle mentor to many others in volunteer service to the community.”
The Citizen of the Year committee said, “We are grateful to have Leila as a valued and cherished member of the Manzanita community.”
