At the Council Meeting on April 8, the Belmont City Council appointed Cathy Wright to fill a vacant Council seat which has a term ending in November 2015. This seat became vacant with the resignation of Christine Wozniak in February. The City Council advertised the opening and received 12 applications to serve the remainder of this term.
Mrs. Wright has considerable experience in serving the Belmont Community. She was elected trustee to the Belmont Redwood Shores School District in 2003 and served two four year terms. She has a proven track record in community involvement. Her tenure as Trustee on the BRSSD Board gives her the ability to understand the dynamics of a governing board.
Mayor Lieberman noted that, “Cathy is a welcomed addition to the City Council and she brings with her the unique knowledge of managing budgets in challenging economic times, parcel tax and bond measure elections, working well with staff and labor representatives, and listening to public input and opinion, all of which are important qualities of an effective Councilmember.”
Additionally the Council took action to move the start time for all City Council regular meetings from 7:30 to 7:00 p.m. effective April 22, 2014.
