Mike Urban Appointed to Chatfield Council


Fri, Apr 26th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

As the Chatfield city charter directs, the council voted to appoint a city resident to fill out the vacant seat created when Don Hainlen resigned his position as mayor. Vice-mayor Russ Smith became mayor as directed by the city charter. This left the council with a vacant seat which was filled at the council’s April 22 meeting. Members voted unanimously to seat Mike Urban, as Vice-mayor.

Urban was one of a group of four citizens which also included John McBroom, Tom French, and Rita Charlton that expressed interest in the seat to fill out the unexpired portion (about 21 months) of Smith’s term ending December 2014. Councilors had received numerous letters and phone calls, many in support of Urban. It was noted that former councilor Josh Thompson also expressed interest but withdrew his name due to his time constraints.

Smith was pleased with the interest from the public and councilor Ken Jacobson said all of those interested were very qualified to be on the council. It was suggested that they could still serve by serving on a committee or they could run for a council seat in the future.

Urban was sworn in and seated on the council. He later thanked them for their vote of confidence and the well wishers that sent e-mails supporting him.
