EVERETT — Ethel McNeal, 67, was named Wednesday night to the Everett City Council. She was sworn in and joined her fellow councilmembers on the dais.
She fills the position that became open when former Councilwoman Cassie Franklin was elected mayor.
Six finalists were interviewed at length during a special council meeting Wednesday afternoon. The vote followed at the regular evening meeting.
Councilmembers who supported McNeal cited her experience with neighborhood involvement and city commissions, as well as her work on labor issues as a past union president in the Edmonds School District. McNeal lives near Silver Lake.
