In November, Councilmember Andrea Anderson resigned from the City Council because she and her family are moving to Utah County.
According to State law, the City Council is required to appoint a new councilmember within 30 days to fill the seat for the remainder of the term. On December 11th, the City Council received several applications for candidates to fill the seat. Through a public selection process, Lisa Bingham was selected as the new member of the Council. We want to thank Andrea Anderson for the great work she did for the residents of Syracuse, and we will certainly miss her. We also want to thank all of the applicants who stepped forward and offered to serve their community.
Lisa has been a resident of Syracuse for over 40 years. She and her husband, Sterling, are small business owners, operating Sterling Quality Point S in Clinton. Lisa is a mother and grandmother. She has served as Chairwoman of Clearfield High’s Community Council as well as a member of the board for eight years. She recently served as Vice Chair of the Davis County Republican Party, First Vice of the Utah Federation of Republican Women, President of Clearfield High’s Alumni Association and President and member of the PTA. She was a columnist for the Syracuse Islander and Davis Clipper and currently serves as a delegate and Vice Chair of Davis County Republican Women. In her excitement and gratitude to represent the citizens of Syracuse, Lisa recently stated, “It’s common knowledge that Syracuse has been scientifically proven to be the best city ever created and is populated by superior beings. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to represent such incredible people and will work hard to combine the best of our past, present and future as we make decisions that impact generations. Thank you for trusting me with this responsibility.”
