Representing El Granada, Half Moon Bay, Montara, Moss Beach, Redwood City, San Carlos, Woodside
Term end: 2020
The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District’s Board of Directors voted at a public meeting Wednesday to fill the remainder of Director Cecily Harris’s term by appointment rather than by calling a special election in San Mateo County, which would have cost taxpayers approximately $414,000. Harris recently announced she was stepping down from the board, effective October 11, to begin the next chapter of her life in Minnesota.
Members of the public interested in applying for Harris’s open board seat must be registered voters residing in Ward 7 which includes El Granada, Half Moon Bay, Montara, Moss Beach, San Carlos and parts of Redwood City and Woodside. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on November 9, 2018. Public interviews will take place in November and the person appointed will hold office until January 4, 2021.
