Longtime Edgewood councilor Chuck Ring resigned from the town council effective June 1, and was replaced by the appointment of Linda Holle.

Holle had served briefly as interim town clerk-treasurer after Mayor John Bassett took office and following the resignation of the former town administrator.

Her letter of interest says she retired from Sandia National Laboratories, where she worked as a project manager. “I am interested in contributing to the community by serving as Town Councilor and believe the experience gained while employed as a Town of Edgewood administrator will serve me well,” Holle wrote. “In addition, with Councilor Ring’s resignation, the Edgewood area south of I-40 will lose its local representative. I have lived south of the Interstate in the Town of Edgewood for 17 years. Should I be approved to complete Councilor Ring’s term, it would maintain the current geographic balance of the council.”

Holle’s first meeting as a town councilor was June 7.
