The makeup of Hastings City Government has been set with Mayor Mary Fasbender reaffirming her oath of office and Dave Pemble and Angie Haus assuming their positions as At-Large Councilmembers.
Fasbender begins her second term as mayor of Hastings, while Haus and Pemble were sworn in to their first ever stint in public office.
When Fasbender was first elected in 2018, she joined a City Council that was fairly green. Only former At-Large Councilemmbers Mark Vaughan and Lori Braucks, who retired at the end of 2021, had more than two years of experience.
Now, Haus and Pemble enter the fold and join forces with a City Council that has 20 years of combined service.
Haus, 24, sits on the boards of local diversity nonprofits Thrive and IDEA Hastings and ran on a platform of diversity, vowing to bring a fresh perspective to the City Council. Pemble, 71, is bringing dozens of years of civic service to the City Council, including time spent on the Hastings School Board, Public Safety Advisory Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission and the Hastings Police Reserves.
