At tonight's meeting of the Belmont City Council, coucilmembers will nominate and vote on the city's next mayor and vice mayor.
Presumably, and as council protocol goes, Vice Mayor Christine Wozniak will take the gavel as mayor for 2013, and a new vice mayor will be nominated and voted upon. However, as Belmont history shows, that protocol is not always followed.
Okay, for those who would like to know who the mayors and vice mayors were over the past 11 years....here goes (please note new mayors/vice mayors are sworn in in Dec. of each year, so the following dates reflect the swearing in dates and the year served):
2001-02 Mayor Dave Warden; Vice Mayor Paul Wright
2002-03 Mayor Paul Wright; Vice Mayor George Metropulos
2003-04 Mayor George Metropulos; Vice Mayor Dave Warden
