Meeting conducted remotely due to coronavirus concerns

Kathleen Baker has been appointed to fill Seth Morgan’s vacant Huber Heights City Council seat.

Baker works in commercial lending at Greenville Federal. Baker said she took that job around the start of 2020. She previously worked as a nurse clinical analyst for Premier Health, according to her resume. She grew up in Huber Heights and graduated from Wayne High School.

She was appointed at a special Huber Heights city council meeting, which was held remotely Monday evening due to coronavirus concerns.

“I’m very excited to grow with the city and I look forward to working with everyone and serving the citizens of Huber Heights,” Baker said.

Baker went to Huber Heights City Hall, which is closed to the public, and was sworn in last night.

Former councilman Morgan resigned because he decided to move out of the city. His resignation was effective Feb. 15.

Baker, Frank Wylie, Jamie Kilburn and Joseph Hendrix all interviewed for the Ward 3 seat earlier this month.

Councilmen Richard Shaw and Glenn Otto voted against the appointment.
