Langley mayor appoints five board spots

Langley filled several citizen board appointments at a recent city council meeting.

Among the five recent appointments is longtime Whidbey environmentalist Marianne Edain. She joined the city’s Parks and Open Space Commission with a mission to work on the city’s bluff stabilization and park access.

The city’s Library Board, which promotes the Langley Library and governs the facility, added three members to its ranks: Karen Looram, Janne Hamick Quintana and Pat McWha.

Marty Butt Beert will serve as an alternate board member.

Langley’s Historic Preservation Commission will also have two new members: Rich Frishman and Bob Thurmond.

Citizen board’s are advisory groups and appointments carry three-year terms.

All of Mayor Fred McCarthy’s nominations were approved in unanimous 3-0 votes on Sept. 23.

Council members Rene Neff and Doug Allderdice were absent.
