REDMOND, OR -- With a year and a half left in her term, Ginny McPherson has resigned from the Redmond City Council. McPherson has served on the Council since 2013, and recently accepted a temporary position with Redmond’s Community Development Department.

 

In a written statement, McPherson said, "What I have enjoyed most about serving on City Council is the involvement I have had in shaping Redmond. My new position affords me the opportunity to increase that involvement in a very hands-on manner."

 

According to the city’s charter, the Mayor may appoint a replacement, with the majority vote of the rest of the council. Mayor George Endicott said in a statement, "With all the projects underway in Redmond, such as Sam Johnson Park and the Evergreen Revitalization Project, we need someone who can hit the ground running. It's important that candidates for appointment understand the role of city government; demonstrate the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively; and have a desire to assume the responsibilities and accountability inherent in the work of a councilmemeber."
 
Over the next few weeks, Mayor Endicott will consider a process to fill the remainder of McPherson's term, expiring at the end of 2016.
