The Rockport City Council, after interviewing four applicants, selected Michael Saski for the open Ward 1 council seat.

That action was taken Monday, June 10 after meeting in executive session.

The opening became available when no candidates filed for the Ward 1 seat in the May election after Councilman Rusty Day decided not to seek reelection.

The term will run until May 2021.

Saski moved to Rockport when he was 15 and has lived here for more than 38 years.

In his application, he noted, “Even as a young man, I felt I was embraced by the city and its residents and never lost this feeling. I felt it was time to give back to the people and place that have been so wonderful to me.”

Saski owns Rockport-based MDS Inspection Services, LLC. Previously, he was involved in the operation of some of the largest EMS companies in the state, where he served in various positions including regional director and vice president.

Saski will be sworn in Tuesday, June 25 at the start of the next council meeting.

Raymond Appel, John Bemrose III, and Lloyd Matthews applied for the position, as well.

Ward 1 encompasses South Rockport, Cove Harbor, a portion of Old Rockport, and the downtown area, as well as the Cultural Arts and Heritage Districts.
