Jackson Council Picks Crew's Replacement

Jackson Council Picks Crew's Replacement

The Jackson City Council concerned itself with personnel matters at its meeting last night.  The night first saw the swearing in of three Council-members for new four-years terms. Keith Sweet, Wayne Garibaldi and Marilyn Lewis all won re-election in November.  The Council then honored outgoing Councilman Pat Crew, with a proclamation.  Crew will be joining the Board of Supervisors in January.  He had served on the City Council for eight years, including four as Mayor.  Following a brief reception for Crew, the Council then voted to select officers for the year, with Connie Gonsalves voted Mayor and Lewis as Vice-Mayor.  The Council then held a hearing to select the replacement for Crew.  Three candidates applied for the position, Robert Stimpson, Walter Hoeser and Rob Klotz.  Each gave brief remarks in front of the Council and took questions.  The Council then voted 3-2 to select Robert Stimpson to fill the seat, with Crew and Gonsalves opposed.  Stimpson has served on the City Planning Commission and Cemetery Board.  In the only administrative item on the agenda, the Council voted to approve an agreement for a loan to pay for the city's upgrade to its waste-water treatment plant.  The loan will be up 12 million dollars.
