Janet Everson has resigned her appointment on the Castro Valley Municipal Advisory Council (MAC). She was originally appointed to the MAC in May 2015 to complete the remainder of a previous appointee’s term and was reappointed to a four-year term over the summer.
“I would like to thank Janet Everson for her time and service on the CV MAC,” Supervisor Nate Miley said in a statement to Castro Valley Matters. “Her expertise and knowledge about law and planning was invaluable. I wish her much success in all her future endeavors.”
Everson’s resignation will be placed on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors agenda for its February 21 meeting, according to Miley’s staff. Once the Supervisors accept Everson’s resignation, applications will be accepted for the open seat for 30 days. Miley will then select a successor and submit his recommendation to the Supervisors for their approval.
Previously, Miley allowed the public to observe a selection panel ask questions of finalists for the seat. The panel included members of the MAC, Supervisor Miley’s staff, and his leadership cabinet.
The Castro Valley MAC, established as an appointed body in a 1981 Board of Supervisors resolution, advises the Board of Supervisors on local planning, land use and community development issues.
Castro Valley Matters, along with various elected officials, has advocated for an elected MAC for Castro Valley. You can learn more about our efforts here.
