Spokane City Mayor David Condon has appointed Kris Mikkelsen to fill a vacancy on the Spokane Airport Board.
She's the retired CEO of Inland Power & Light. The city council is expected to confirm her appointment at its Monday meeting in City Hall.
“I am pleased that Kris has volunteered to serve in this capacity,” said Condon. “She brings a keen business sense and an understanding of our community to this important board.”
In addition to her career at Inland Power, Mikkelsen also is an Eastern Washington University trustee and has been busy in a range of other volunteer positions.
The board vacancy is the result of David Brukhardt leaving Spokane to take a position with the University of Wisconsin.
The term on the board expires Dec. 31, 2014.
