Cedrick Frazier Appointed to New Hope City Council
The New Hope City Council appointed Cedrick Frazier to replace Erik Lammle, who moved to a different city.
Frazier is an attorney for Education Minnesota, the union group representing teachers. He also currently serves on the New Hope Planning Commission. Frazier will fill the remainder of Erik Lammle’s term, which runs through 2020.
“I can’t overstate my admiration for New Hope,” said Frazier in a press release. “The city has been able to accomplish many great things in service of its residents. I’m very excited to join the New Hope City Council and have the opportunity to connect with its wonderful citizens.”
Frazier has also served as a election judge in Minneapolis. He has been a volunteer at William McGee Moot Court, HOME Line Connect, the YMCA’s Youth in Government Day, Street Law at Johnson Elementary School and Loaves and Fishes.
“We had a wonderful candidate pool to choose from for the open seat,” said New Hope Mayor Kathi Hemken in a press release. “The City Council and I thank all of those who applied and went through the interview process. In the end, however, we felt as though Mr. Frazier stood out as our top choice to best serve the people and businesses of New Hope.”
Frazier will be sworn in Sept. 10.
