Council Fills Position #4 Vacancy

Dec 12, 2018 - Following the resignation of Tom Acker, Council Position #4 became vacant in September 2018. Twelve Mercer Island residents submitted applications to fill the position, and the City conducted public candidate interviews in early December.
At last night's (Dec 11) special meeting, the Council appointed Lisa Anderl, a resident of 19 years who recently served on a 23-member community advisory group appointed to make a recommendation to the City Manager on addressing the growing budget deficit.
Because the seat was unexpectedly vacated mid-term, this appointment begins next week on December 18, when Ms. Anderl will be sworn in, and will expire following the certification of the November 2019 general election results. [A formal, public swearing in ceremony will occur at the scheduled January 15, 2019 City Council Meeting].
Ms. Anderl currently works as Senior Associate General Counsel for CenturyLink in Seattle and attended Gonzaga University School of Law.  She enjoys walking the Island's many parks and trails with her husband and their chocolate lab.
Mayor Debbie Bertlin stated "We are pleased to fill Council Position #4, and welcome Ms. Anderl to the Council."
