Issaquah City Council members welcomed their newest colleague Dec. 2, 2013, as Mary Lou Pauly took the oath of office.
A recently retired engineer, Pauly served on the Development Commission for 19 years and, earlier this year, as a member of the Klahanie PAA Task Force. She also brings a long history of community involvement and volunteerism to the role.
Pauly, who was elected in November, replaces former Councilman Joe Forkner, who was appointed in January and chose not to run for election to the Position 1 seat.
Pauly earned a Bachelor of Applied Science (civil engineering) at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, and moved to Issaquah almost 20 years ago. She worked as an engineer in the United States and Canada for more than 25 years.
Pauly and her husband, Karl, live on Squak Mountain and are the parents of two grown children.
