After applying to fill the vacancy, former Toledo City Councilor Jill Lyon was appointed last month, following an interview with the Central Lincoln board.  For nearly ten years, Director Lyon served as the national advocate for telecommunications and information technology networks of electric, gas, and water utilities throughout the United States, providing her with significant knowledge of how utilities operate.  She holds a Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University Law Center, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tulsa.  Her volunteer work on the Oregon Coast includes six years as a Toledo city councilor, two years as council president; vice chair of the Economic Development Alliance of Lincoln County board of directors, and five years volunteering for the Yaquina River Museum of Art’s board.

“We appreciated so much Larkin’s dedication and service to our customers as a member of the board, and were sad to see him leave,” says Board President Judy Matheny.  “And we are very pleased to have a new director with Jill’s utility background, and record of volunteer service here on the Coast.  Welcome, Jill!”
