Hines rejoins Mt. Gilead council
By Randa Wagner -
Kay Hines has been appointed to fill the seat vacated by Dianne Matuch on the Mt. Gilead Village Council. She was sworn in Monday evening by Village Solicitor Matt Griffith and comes to the position with 12 years of previous experience on council.
Hines is enthusiatic and glad to be back with both familiar and new faces.
“I came back because I wanted to give the Village of Mt. Gilead my skills and assets that I have to offer,” she said after Monday evening’s meeting. “Also, I’m very concerned about the fire levy and I want to see that followed through with a passage, because it affects every resident who owns property in Mt. Gilead.”
Hines will head up the Fire and Police Committee for village council.
She got her start years ago on the recreation board, where she served for about 18 months.
“Then a position became available and I ran for council,” she said, where she served from 1992 through 2004. She has since served on several local boards.
When the term for her seat expires December 31 of this year, Hines said she intends to run to retain it.
