San Clemente Gets New Elected Official

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on March 20, 2013

I am finally stationary for the first time today and have meaning to blog about this item since early this morning. San Clemente residents witnessed a new elected official get selected yesterday at the City Council meeting.

Former San Clemente City Treasurer Pall Gudgeirsson moved up he food chain recently to become the new San Clemente City Manager. This caused a vacancy for the office of City Treasurer which in San Clemente is an elected position. Gudgeirsson had served as Sen Clemente City Treasurer for a while and ran unopposed for City Treasurer in 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, and… well you get the point.

This is an elected office where you have no voting rights but as John Moorlach could warn you a Treasurer can make grave mistakes.

Yesterday in a unanimous vote Mark Taylor was selected to be the new San Clemente City Treasurer. We here at OC Political would like to wish him the best of luck in this office. Stay tuned tonight as I am currently watching the “Green City Initiative” item on the Aliso Viejo City Council agenda and will write about it later this evening.
