Why are we "Lucky District 7"?
Councilman William "Bill" Himmelmann represented the district from 1995-1999 and coined the phrase "A little Slice of Heaven in Lucky District 7," putting the phrase on stickers, coffee cups and other swag. His successor, Councilwoman Kathleen McKenzie (1999-2007) kept the phrase but shortened it to "Lucky District 7." Councilman Chris Nevitt used the phrase during his tenure from 2007-2015. Continuing the tradition, Councilman Clark refers to the district as Lucky District 7.
