A veteran of Centennial City Council has returned to the dais.
The council voted last week to appoint former Councilmember Ron Weidmann to fill a vacant District 4 position, the recently vacated seat of the newly sworn-in Mayor Stephanie Piko.
Weidmann, whose mid-term appointment will expire in January 2020, previously served as a District 4 councilmember from 2006 until 2014. After that, he continued to be involved in the Centennial community by serving as a city-appointed member of Southeast Stormwater Authority, the Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Authority and the Arapahoe County Trails and Open Space Advisory Board.
Piko resigned her council seat last month after officially becoming the city’s third mayor. At that time, City Council opted to fill her vacant seat by appointment of a District 4 resident, rather than hold a more expensive special election.
Nine district residents submitted applications, and on Jan. 22, the council narrowed the selection to three finalists for formal interviews. The other contenders included John Miquel, who unsuccessfully ran for a vacant District 4 seat last year, and Sarah Whitely. Interviews took place Feb. 7.
