MILL CREEK — The Mill Creek City Council on Tuesday chose Stephanie Vignal to fill a vacant council seat.

The appointment is set to last until results from the November election are certified. Vignal said she intends to run to keep the seat.

Vignal has lived in Mill Creek for four years and has served on the city’s parks board. She and her husband moved from North Carolina after his company transferred him to another office.

“I really love Mill Creek because I love all of their parks, how they have trails that interconnect,” Vignal said. “You’re close to everything, but you feel like you’re in the country. It’s just beautiful.”

Vignal, 44, holds a degree in business administration, according to the city. She previously worked as a property manager.

The vacancy opened after Jared Mead was elected to the state House of Representatives last fall.

Seven people applied for the appointment.
