Stanwood City Council unanimously approved Tyler Murphy's appointment to the planning commission Thursday night, to fill the position Roger Haskins vacated when he was selected to the council.
Murphy graduated Stanwood High School (SHS) in 2008. He's currently studying for his associates in arts and sciences degree at Skagit Valley College.
Murphy said he applied to the planning commission because his "family has deep ties to Stanwood and surrounding communities." I'd like to give back to a community that helped raise me, and participate in developing and contributing to the inevitable growth of Stanwood," he said. Murphy's term will only run through the end of the yea. After that, he may reapply for a full term. (October 19, 2010 Author: JHagan)
