Mead's victory will create another vacancy on Mill Creek City Council

By Dan Aznoff | Nov 15, 2018

The positive results for one member of the Mill Creek City Council on election night have apparently set the stage for a new round of interviews for an open seat.

Councilmember Jared Mead, a Democrat who took his seat on the seven-member board in January, plans to step down when he assumes the duties of state representative in Position 2, representing the 44th Legislative District.

Mead defeated incumbent Republican lawmaker Mark Harmsworth in the general election on Nov. 6.

Mead told The Beacon he plans to resign before the end of the year, but will do whatever is best for the city.

“My only job beginning in January will be representing the residents of the district, including Mill Creek,” Mead said. “Until then, my first responsibility will be to the city and to my role as a member of the City Council.”

The last open seat on the Mill Creek council attracted dozens of applicants last February. Nineteen individuals were interviewed by the council before John Steckler was named to fill the unexpired term of Sean Kelly.
