After a sometimes contentious and very public process of deciding who would replace Brian Eades' Place 2 seat, the City Council has finally chosen their new member.

Lisa Blake was voted in 3-1 for the vacant seat.  Blake is an Amarillo native and began a career in banking and marketing in 1991.  She currently serves as executive of Leadership Amarillo.  She also serves on the board of Directors for Cal Farley's Boys Ranch School Board.
