The end of City Council appointments?

The Half Moon Bay City Council is working on rules for the appointment and ultimate election of new members in the event one of its own calls it quits. Currently the council can appoint a member to fill the entirety of the unexpired term or set an election for the position. But the council is now working to combine the two with a policy allowing a short appointment until a special election can be set.

Does that seem like a good idea to you?


It would depend on the remaining time of the term. If it was one and a half years or less, then appoint. It would spare the expense of a a special election.

There is the argument that an incumbent has a greater chance of being elected, but if the appointee is effective in improving the community, then there should not be any concerns.

If the remaining term is more than one and a half years, then apoint interim until a special election was held.

Elections are always great for reviewing what priorities are.

Why is water permitted to flow into the Fitzgerard reserve emanating from 96 Terrace Lane? It pours abundantly from the house into the most protected site into the Marine Reserve which used to be filled with seals (Thus Seal Cove getting its name) Also, the Fitzgerald Reserve has the most pristine tide pools in AMERICA outdoing Scripps, Monterey, and the entire West Coast all the way to Washington and south to Mexico. Ask a biology teacher what this represents. We asked a neighbor when we saw water literally gushing into the ocean why it was not stopped to which he replied, "I am not permitted to make any complaints about this property located a 96 Terrace Lane". He was polite and asked that his name please not be mentioned especially to David Holbrook because 96 Terrace Lane is not culpable for any complaints which belong to a TRUST who cannot be reached." Seal cove is all but stripped of the hundreds which played daily for hundreds of years. Where are you, Mr. Gore?
