Winifred Tate, associate professor of anthropology, was elected Waterville’s City Council representing Ward 6, the Morning Sentinel reports Jan. 17. Tate, a nine-year resident of Waterville with two children in public schools, said she was raised to value public service. She’s also “concerned about how to balance the needs of all community members and manage the city’s resources,” she told the Sentinel. Tate is on the parents’ ad hoc advisory board for Common Street Arts and is a member of Colby’s working group on civic engagement, the Sentinel reports.
