MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon City Council has appointed Erin Moberg to replace outgoing Councilman Joe Lindquist.

Moberg, a nurse, was one of four applicants for the position. She will take office Tuesday and will serve the remaining year of Lindquist’s term.

“As a motivated healthcare worker, homeowner and taxpayer, I am confident that I will offer a well-rounded approach to the City Council’s endeavors,” Moberg said in a news release from the city.

Lindquist, who was elected in November to the Skagit Public Utility District Board of Commissioners, will vacate his seat Monday.

The council interviewed the candidates at a public meeting Dec. 19 and selected Moberg at that meeting, the release states.
