We offer our sincere thanks to former Issaquah City Council members Nina Milligan and Joshua Schaer for their years of service to our community.
Milligan — who served from February 2014 to November 2015 — was appointed to fill a vacancy after Fred Butler was elected mayor.
As a council member, Milligan served on the Services & Safety and Infrastructure committees, and represented Issaquah on the Cascade Water Alliance board.
Before joining the council, Milligan, a longtime Issaquah Highlands resident, served as a member of the Urban Village Development Commission.
Jennifer Sutton was elected to succeed Milligan in the Position 2 seat.
Schaer — elected in 2007 and re-elected in 2011 — led the creation of a first-on-the-Eastside food-packaging ordinance and polystyrene container ban.
While serving on the council’s Transportation and, later, Infrastructure committees, Schaer made transportation a key focus. In 2015, he served as chair of the Eastside Transportation Partnership.
In addition, Schaer was the first Talus resident to serve as a council member.
Bill Ramos was elected to succeed Schaer in the Position 4 seat.
