Newcomer to fill seat

SOLON– Jessie Ehlinger honestly did not expect to be appointed.
Ehlinger, 27, was selected last week to fill the Solon City Council vacancy created by the election of Cami Rasmussen as mayor.
“I knew I wanted to become more involved with the functionality and logistics of the city,” Ehlinger noted in an email Friday. “So I applied to be on the library board. When Cami was elected mayor and her seat became available, I decided to show my interest in this position on city council.”
