Eau Claire, Wis. (WEAU) - The Eau Claire City Council has selected their newest member.
The council appointed Catherine Emmanuelle Tuesday evening. She beat out fellow candidate Dave Strobel by a vote of 6 to 4. Emmanuelle, who also serves on the board of directors for Clear Vision Eau Claire, says she believes her strong stance on keeping local jobs helped her get the position.
