Carol Uminski will get the opportunity to serve her hometown.

Uminski was appointed by Blawnox officials to council at the Dec. 20 meeting.

She was the only nominee brought to the floor.

Uminski replaces Anthony Gross who was named mayor after Tom Smith's resignation in November.

Gross' term ends in 2013.

Uminski said she had previously wanted to run for council in the borough but was unable to because of her job.

When that job changed, she decided to apply for the open seat.

“Unfortunately, in the past I was unable to run because of my position,” Uminski said.

Uminski said she is eager to work with officials on issues throughout the borough.

Truck traffic is one area she would like to address.

“The area where I live, there are some trucking issues I'd like to resolve,” she said.
