Recommendation for appointment of Tamar Powell to the Midcoast Community Council, for a partial term ending December 9, 2020.

 

body

BACKGROUND:

An unexpected vacancy opened on the Midcoast Community Council due to the appointment of a member to the San Mateo County Planning Commission. The sitting members of the MCC subsequently interviewed candidates who expressed interest in being appointed to the vacant seat. They forwarded their recommendation on to Supervisor Don Horsley, who selected the name of candidate Tamar Powell to forward to the Board of Supervisors for confirmation. Tamar was the primary recommendation from the MCC.

 

DISCUSSION:

Because the vacancy on the MCC is in the middle of a term, it was deemed acceptable

to submit a candidate for appointment approved by the remaining members of the MCC

to fill out the remainder of the term, which will expire December 9, 2020. Tamar Powell currently lives in Moss Beach and has a variety of experience volunteering to support her community, including serving as a docent at Ano Nuevo. Her range of experience as well as her passion for the community make her an excellent addition to the MCC.

 

This appointment continues to show the collaborative relationship between the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and the Midcoast Community Council.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

None.
