[ARCHIVED] Thank You, Councilmember Wheetley! Council Application Materials Available Now

Arcata City Council on March 1, 2017

Good-bye and thank you, Councilmember Wheetley!

Councilmember Mark Wheetley was first elected to Arcata City Council in 2005 and served as Mayor in 2008, 2009 and 2014. His long tenure is marked with both a neighborhood and school based focus as well as a dedication to regional and state-wide advocacy for Arcata and the North Coast. He ensured Arcata continued to stay on the cutting edge of environmental policy and practices pushing for alternative fuel cars, solar energy, marsh and tideland restoration and carbon sequestration projects. His recent work with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move and Healthy Cities Campaign earned him a trip to the White House. His history and thorough understanding of the challenges facing rural communities and coastal cities will be sorely missed in Arcata.

Applications to fill Councilmember Wheetley's seat on the Arcata City Council are available now. To officially apply, applicants must pick up forms from the Arcata City Manager's office and return them by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2017. This vacancy is for the remainder of a term expiring in December 2018.
