Tacoma City Council Member to Take Leave of Absence
Here's a bit of City Council news: Tacoma City Councilmember Anders Ibsen will be taking a leave of absence of at least 11 months.
According to the TNT, Ibsen, who was elected to the District 1 seat in 2011, will be training as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps reserves.
Ibsen has made public that he hopes the Council will hand off his spot to Jordan Rash, Vice Chair of the North End Neighborhood Council, and conservation director for Forterra. Of course the final decision on that will be up to a slightly more involved process, and the rest of Council.
Because this is a leave of absence, rather than a resignation, Ibsen will be expected to rejoin the Council when his training is complete, in late 2014 or early 2015. He will have about a year left of his Council term at that point.
