|Callinan named mayor, Ahanotu, vice mayor, for RP council in 2014
All five Rohnert Park City Council members agreed to name Joe Callinan and Amy Ahanotu, mayor and vice-mayor, for next year. Both men, who are serving their first four-year term on the council, are the only council members who have never officially wielded the gavel as mayor.
The action took place Tuesday night Nov. 26, in city hall and it took up barely 30 seconds of time on the council’s agenda. Mayor Pam Stafford made both nominations and Councilwoman Gina Belforte seconded her motion. Councilman Jake Mackenzie agreed along with both nominees.
New Mayor Callinan and vice-Mayor Ahanotu will take up their duties Tuesday Dec. 10, when the council holds its annual reorganization meeting. This will be the only RP council meeting in December. They’ve already cancelled the second meeting since it falls on Christmas Eve.
