Jesus Silva was sworn into office tonight by his wife, Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva, as the newest member of the Fullerton City Council. Bruce Whitaker will serve as mayor, Doug Chaffee will be Mayor Pro Tem, in accordance with the rules of rotation previously adopted by the council.

It was announced earlier in the meeting that Joe Felz has retired from the position of City Manager. A special meeting has been called for January 5 to consider candidates for the position of City Manager. Fullerton currently has no long term Librarian, Chief of Police, or City Manager. Mr. Silva will have the opportunity to be a very influential vote on these hirings.
