Fife City Council appointed Lisa McClellan to the vacant Council seat at their regular meeting on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. McClellan was one of five applicants interviewed during the meeting and will serve on Council in Position Six until a successor is selected and confirmed in either the 2017 Primary or General Election (depending on whether more than one individual runs for office).
Councilmember McClellan is a three year resident of Fife. She has been a member of Fife’s Planning Commission since 2016, and was on the Fife Parks & Recreation Advisory Board from 2014 to 2016.
During her interview at Tuesday’s meeting, council asked what changes she would like to see made in Fife. McClellan said she would like to see Fife become a place where people can stay, emphasizing the need for more small businesses, a grocery store and restaurants.
“I now want to take the next step to delve even deeper into helping shape my community through serving on the City Council,” McClellan said. “I am a third generation resident and truly love my city.”
