At the public meeting on January 2, 2018, the Board of Supervisors formally will accept the resignation of Supervisor Joseph Denham. Joe, who served as Supervisor for four years, is leaving for personal reasons.
Under state law, the Board of Supervisors is charged with appointing someone by the end of January to fill the vacant seat until the next municipal election in November 2019. As there are only two years remaining in Joe’s six-year term, this seat would have been on the November 2019 ballot. Candidates running in the November 2019 municipal election for this seat will vie for a full six-year term.
Since the Board of Supervisors recently went through a public interview and appointment process to fill a Supervisor vacancy, Michele Moll and Theresa Santalucia intend to start by reviewing the candidacies of applicants who participated in that process. They plan to announce their appointment at the January 24th Board of Supervisors meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
