The Lansing City Council will officially be back at full strength tonight, when it swears in its newest member.  Vincent Delgadowas appointed to the council Thursday night in a 6 to 1 vote.  He’ll finish the current term vacated by Derrick Quinney, who stepped down after becoming the new Ingham County Register of Deeds.

Delgado is an Assistant Dean for Civic Engagement in the Residential College In The Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University.  He has an extensive background in public administration.  Among other projects, he co-founded the Refugee Development Center in Lansing and formerly co-chaired the Ingham “Power of We Consortium.”  
Current State talks to Delgado about his new role as an elected official.
