New Hope City Councilman Eric Lammle Resigns
It was a bitter sweet city council meeting for New Hope’s Eric Lammle.
Monday’s meeting was the last for the 3-term veteran of the council. He’s resigning because he’s moving out of the city to be closer to his job.
Lammle was first elected in 2008. He then won re-election twice. Along with that, he also served as the citizen representative to the west metro fire district’s board of directors.
Looking back on his years with the city, Lammle says one thing he’s proud of is the council’s ability to put political differences aside.
“We watch politics at the state level and federal level and they just don’t work,” said Councilman Eric Lammle. “These are a bunch of folks that throw aside whatever political leanings they have, and they just do what’s right for the city.”
Lammle’s last official day is Wednesday. The city council will appoint a replacement to serve the rest of his term, which ends in 2020.
If you’d like to be considered for the job, the application deadline is Friday. For more information about the city of New Hope’s local government you can visit their website.
