HELENA – Kali Wicks is officially Helena’s newest city commissioner.

She was sworn in at Monday’s city council meeting and replaces Rob Farris-Olsen, who was elected to represent House District 79 in the state legislature.

Commissioners chose Wicks out of 11 applicants for the position.

She told MTN she’s excited to work with the current commissioners, and some of her top priorities include tackling affordable housing and improving city services like snow removal.

Wicks will serve the last year of Farris-Olsen’s term and will be able to run for a full four-year term in the 2019 city elections.
