The Arcata City Council appointed a new Mayor and Vice-Mayor at a special meeting on Wednesday, October 20.
The Council elected Councilmember Stacy Atkins-Salazar to be Mayor and Councilmember Emily Goldstein to serve as Vice-Mayor.
Both Mayor Atkins-Salazar and Vice-Mayor Goldstein will serve in their new roles until December 2022 as the City’s Municipal Code requires the Arcata City Council to select the mayor and vice-mayor annually at a special meeting held each December. The mayor of Arcata’s duties include presiding at Council meetings, representing the Council at community events and performing other ministerial duties, and the vice-mayor will preside in the event of the mayor’s absence.
Of her appointment, Mayor Atkins-Salazar said, “I am honored to now be serving our City in the capacity as Mayor, and I look forward to helping our Council accomplish the many goals that we have put forward.”
