During the Feb. 25 City Council meeting, Norton and her fellow Council candidates were sequestered until they could receive the same questions that each Council member asked each candidate, starting with Steve Muller, who asked Norton whether she’d ever been part of a group decision in which the majority of the group did not share SEE NORTON, PAGE 2 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo Kamille Norton, right, takes her seat in the Marysville City Council on Feb. 25 alongside fellow Council member Steve Muller. 738867 WS
