Historical Details to Sausalito City Council Race

Short Term Race

Background

On April 18, 2017 Councilmember Herb Weiner, with a term expiring in November 2018, resigned from the Sausalito City Council. At the Council’s May 2nd, 2017 regular meeting, the city Council discussed the vacancy and directed staff to solicit applications from interested residents.

 

Applications were accepted from May 3rd-May 17th to fill the remainder of the term, which will expire in November, 2018. The City Council interviewed eleven city residents who submitted applications to fill the City Council vacancy.

 

At a special meeting on May 30th the Council selected a subset of four applicants to move forward in the appointment process. The applicants selected were: 

·       Susan Cleveland-Knowles 

·       Kate Stohr 

·       Keith Stoneking and

·       Bill Werner 

On June 6 the City Council held a vote to appoint a candidate to the vacant Council position. The Council's vote was a two/two split for Susan Cleveland-Knowles and Bill Werner. Since an appointment required at least three votes, the Council was not able to make an appointment.

 

Therefore, the City Council adopted a Resolution calling for a special election for November 7, 2017 to fill the vacant Council seat through November 7, 2018.

You must select at least 2 candidates to compare them.
