Next Steps in Filling Vacant City Council Seat by Appointment

At the Tuesday, Jan. 24 meeting, the City Council narrowed the list of 10 applicants to five individuals who remain under consideration for appointment to the vacant Council seat.

The applicants moving forward in the appointment process are Ronit Bryant, Chris Clark, Michael Kasperzak, John McAlister and Emily Ann Ramos. The Council will now interview these five applicants at the Monday, Jan. 30 meeting. The swearing-in of the new Councilmember is scheduled to take place at the Tuesday, Feb. 14 meeting.

The vacancy was created by the resignation of former Councilmember Sally J. Lieber due to her recent election to the California State Board of Equalization. The appointed Councilmember will hold the seat for the remainder of the term, which expires January 2025.
