South Lake Tahoe, CA- South Lake Tahoe’s City Council certified election results today and will swear in two new members to the Council.
John Fredrich and Christi Creegan will be the newest members of the Council. They ran against a formidable group of candidates and were eventually declared the winners.
“I want to thank Mayor Collin and Council Member Lane for their service and their advice on how to do this job well,” said Council Member-Elect John Friedrich, “I look forward to working with your colleges to build on the work you’ve done.”
“I’m happy that the election results have been certified and thrilled to have a seat on our City Council,” said Council Member-Elect Christi Creegan, “We have a fantastic foundation to build on and a lot of projects to work on to make this community one we can all be proud of.”
The City also certified the passing Measure S, a one-cent sales tax measure that will help fund things like fire safety, road work, and snow removal.
“We know that the City will be facing significant shortfalls in the years to come,” said City Manager Joe Irvin, “This Measure will significantly help the City make sure it lives up to the things our citizens want and need.”
Council also recognized former Mayor Brooke Laine, and Outgoing Mayor Jason Collin for their years of service. They were instrumental in so many things including affordable housing, developing a cannabis ordinance, working on the 56-Acre project, and so much more.
“It is definitely an act of hope to go into a life of public service,” said Irvin, “We are proud to recognize these new Council members and have the utmost respect for Brooke and Jason for making our community better and their devotion to the City of South Lake Tahoe. We owe them a debt of gratitude.”
City Council will meet for their regularly scheduled meeting tomorrow where they will decide who will become the next Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem. Watch it live on our website here.
