Liz Milwe, who served on the Representative Town Meeting from 2005 to 2011, will rejoin the town’s 36-member legislative body representing District 1.
RTM Moderator Eileen Lavigne Flug said she was the choice of the three remaining District 1 members Monday to fill the vacancy created by the resignation in May of Don Bergmann and will serve until November 2015. Martin Bell, a fellow resident of Saugatuck Shores, was the only other candidate interviewed.
Milwe, who was one of the original four RTM members who successfully pushed through the town’s plastic bag ban in 2009, did not seek re-election in November 2011.
She was originally appointed to the RTM in 2005 when she lived in District 4 and not enough candidates appeared on the ballot from the district. She subsequently was elected in her own right from District 4 in 2007 and from District 1 in 2009.
