Edi Birsan and Carlyn Obringer were sworn in tonight and are now officially Councilmembers for the new term (re-elected and newly elected, respectively).
Edi was elected Vice-Mayor by his colleagues, and Laura Hoffmeister was confirmed as Mayor for her second year, both until December 2017. Ron Leone ends his term as Vice-Mayor but remains as a Councilmember. Laura and Ron’s terms on Council will end in 2018.
One seat remains empty on Council due to the election of Tim Grayson to the California Assembly. A seat is also now open on the Planning Commission due to Carlyn’s election to Council. The Council seat will be filled via selection by the now-sitting four-member Council, and the Planning Commission seat by the five-member Council after that, both from among any Concord voters who choose to apply.
