[ARCHIVED] Welcome: New Councilmember Lindsey Walsh
Issaquah City Council members welcomed their newest colleague Feb. 5, 2019, as Lindsey Walsh took the oath of office.
Walsh, who works in marketing, has served on the City's Planning Policy Commission for two years. She graduated from USC with a degree in Public Policy, Planning and Development with a focus on local city government.
"I want to serve the city that is my chosen home to guide the future – to protect the town we know and guide its growth during this important time of development,” she wrote in her council application.
Walsh was appointed by a majority council vote to the Position 4 seat. The seat became vacant Jan. 1, 2019 when Bill Ramos was elected to serve as state representative.
The appointee to the vacant seat will serve until the November 2019 general election is certified.
