Prior to being elected to the City Council, Hadley served on the Normandy Park Board of Adjustment. Hadley served as Mayor Pro Tem from January 2006 – December 2009.
George’s position will be filled by the City Council until a new Councilmember is elected during the November 2011 General Election. City Councilmembers are volunteers and must attend several evening meetings each month.
