Amanda Lynn Hurtak will be sworn in Thursday as the newest member of the Tampa City Council.
Council members selected Hurtak to serve the remainder of John Dingfelder’s term – about 13 months – representing District 3. The selection was made after two rounds of voting and hearing from 23 applicants. Dingfelder resigned last month as part of a settlement in a public records lawsuit.
Hurtak was seen as a top contender to replace him.
“I am a deeply ethical person dedicated to pragmatic solutions that will make Tampa a better, more inclusive and more prosperous city,” Hurtak said when addressing the council.
