Gahanna City Council has selected Tim Pack to fill the available at-large council seat left vacant by the resignation of Andre Porter.

Council president David Samuel said each council member had different reasons for selecting Pack from among eight candidates who initially had applied for the position.

"He has a great knowledge of what's going on in Gahanna, the government structure, and he served Gahanna well on the Board of Building and Zoning Appeals (BZA)," Samuel said.

Pack has served as chairman, vice chairman and a member of the BZA since 2000.

"I'm glad to be a part of a great community, and, hopefully, I can make a contribution as a council member," Pack told ThisWeek. "In my travels over the years, I've visited many cities. We have no problems compared to other cities. We have challenges, and out of challenges come solutions, and from solutions bring strength for the future."
