The Herald recently published a story remembering Dr. Frank Hammer who was the Mountlake Terrace Mayor from 1960-1964:
Frank Hammer was the mayor of Mountlake Terrace from 1960 to 1964, when the town still had dirt roads. He also served on the city council for a decade.
Being a mayor near Seattle was a big deal, Dan Hammer said. They got to sit on the barge at hydroplane races.
Dr. Hammer was elected mayor because he was even-handed, said Phyllis Fiege, who lived in Mountlake Terrace during his term. Her husband, Gene Fiege, served on the city council.
