Herb Weiner's resignation on April 18, 2017, created an open seat on the five-member Sausalito City Council. At the Council meeting on May 2, the remaining Councilmembers directed City staff to solicit applications from Sausalito residents to complete Mr. Weiner's term, which will expire in November of 2018.

Applications to serve on the Council were accepted from May 3 to May 17. Residents of Sausalito who are registered to vote in the City of Sausalito and 18 years and older were eligible to be considered for appointment. 

The City Clerk received thirteen applications by the submission deadline. A complete list of applicants, accompanied by links to submitted application documents, is available on the Vacant Councilmember Seat page on the City of Sausalito website.

The City Council will interview applicants on May 23 and May 30. At its discretion, the Council may identify additional interview dates. An appointment may be made at the June 6 regular meeting of the Council, or soon after. The Council has reserved the option of calling for a November 2017 special election in lieu of making an appointment.
