Charlotte City Council voted 10-0 Monday to name Carlenia Ivory as the new District 2 council member.
Ivory, a Democrat, replaces Democrat Al Austin, who resigned from council earlier this month for a job with the N.C. Department of Transportation.
District 2 covers much of northwest Charlotte, starting in uptown and reaching toward Northlake Mall and Mountain Island Lake.
Ivory, 67, has lived in Hyde Park for 43 years.
Never miss a local story.
State law requires that council vacancies be filled by council members. The person appointed must be a member of the same political party and must be registered to vote and live in the district.
The city will hold a public swearing-in ceremony for Ivory on Aug. 28.
There are now two of 11 council members who have been appointed. Dimple Ajmera in District 5 was also appointed to replace John Autry, who joined the N.C. General Assembly.
