This week, longtime Normandy Park resident Sheri Healey was selected to fill a vacant seat on the Normandy Park City Council.
The No. 1 post seat was vacated during the summer when council member Earnest Thompson died.
Her term will expire on December 31, 2023 and she has the opportunity to stand for election in the 2023 elections.
Healey was chosen in an executive session over Lawrence Peryer, Melissa Petrini, Todd Cahill and Vincent Delaurenti after being interviewed at the September 27, 2022 board meeting.
Healey is co-owner of Deane Home Services and has over 15 years of experience as CEO of a non-profit organization, where she oversaw all aspects of management and operations.
She has lived in the city for 24 years.
On her application for the position, Healey said that over the next 10 years she wants to see “the expansion of communication to reduce potential false narratives” and “strive to update the civic center in a way that uplifts our community for future generations.”
Healey has been a member of the Civic Center community since 2012, as well as on the oral advice of Normandy Park Police.
“I have been involved with NP City in different ways,” she said. “I think I can bring a historical aspect to the table and the ability to see both sides of an issue to work together rather than dividing efforts to build our community together.”
When asked about his main interests or concerns in city programs, Healey cited “maintaining a positive police presence in the NP community, developing the civic center” and “providing community programs autonomous necessary.
Healey will be sworn in at the October 11, 2022 council meeting.
