BREMERTON — Tony Hillman, controller for Habitat for Humanity, was appointed Jan. 10 to complete the City Council term of Greg Wheeler, who became mayor Jan. 1.

Hillman, 39, was one of seven applicants for the District 4 position. The council voted 4-2 for his appointment. The position will be on the November 2019 general election ballot.

City Council President Eric Younger said Hillman’s professional background was a part of the reason he was chosen. Hillman has worked as a certified public accountant, a controller for a major company, and is currently a controller for Habitat for Humanity.

“He’s got a good business background,” Younger said. “Just the way he presented himself during the interview [was appealing]. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

City Council members are elected to four-year terms and receive $12,000 to $13,800 a year. City Council members perform the legislative function of local government. This includes establishing goals, priorities, and policies; adopting ordinances and resolutions; as well as approving the annual budget and monitoring expenditures related to city business throughout the year.
