Ryan Greene
Greene takes seat on council

PATEROS - With the resignation last month of former Pateros City Council member Mary Haas, the city has swiftly filled the vacancy.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Pateros native Ryan Greene to position No. 4.

While Greene wasn't the only resident to express interest in the open seat, he was the only one to fill out the application, said Mayor Gail Howe.

Greene moved back about three years ago for a job building log homes, he said, and offered a simple goal for his term.

"I've got fond memories of growing up here," he said. "I don't know why some things have changed, whether it's money, budget... but I'd like to see other kids be able to have those same types of fond memories."

Greene displayed confidence when Councilman Adam Fritz asked if he would be able to continue working with the council in a productive manner if it nixed one of his ideas or proposals.

"I'm my own filter system; I've been in management for my entire adult life, so I don't generally present an idea that's going to get shot down," he said.
