At the council meeting, Tuesday, Oct. 14, Amy Steenbock was appointed by the Clintonville City Council to fill the District 3 vacancy.
Two candidates submitted letters of application to fill the vacancy, which was created when Alderman Jerry Jorgenson resigned from the seat on Sept. 3. In addition to Steenbock, Daniel Rindt also submitted a letter of application for the council seat.
In her letter of application, Steenbock stated that she is a lifelong resident of Clintonville, is interested in city government and had attended several council meeting. She also stated that her father, Leon Steenbock, served on the council and was president of the council for several years.
In the letter, Steenbock included a list of community activities she’s been involved in. She also highlighted how her current job at Premier Community Bank will help her fulfill the duties of being an alderwoman.
Toward the end of the letter she stated, “I am willing to serve our city in this interim position. I have thought long and hard on this decision and would be honored to be selected.”
Alderman Greg Rose made the motion to appoint Steenbock to fill the vacancy. Alderwoman Mary-Beth Kuester seconded the motion.
Both Steenbock and Rindt were in attendance, but during the discussion neither one of them were asked questions by any of the council members.
Steenbocked was appointed to the seat by an 8-1 vote. Alderman Mark Doornink voted no.
She will fulfill the rest of Jorgenson’s term, which ends in April 2015.
