With the election of Placer County Supervisor (District 1) in the fall, Bonnie Gore, the City of Roseville was left with vacancies on the Council. Gore served on the Roseville City Council in 2012, served as Vice Mayor of Roseville from 2016-2018 and Mayor from December 2018 through January 2019. She resigned in January to take her seat as Placer County Supervisor. As a result, the Council needed to fill the vacant seat on the Council and then select a new Mayor. The City Charter does not have a process for filling either a vacant council seat or mayor seat. It is up to the City Council to determine the process to fill the vacancies and historically, the Council has appointed a member of the community to the open seat.
Vice-Mayor Krista Bernasconi led the February 6th City Council meeting. After review of the applications, the Council appointed Bruce Houdesheldt to fill the vacant seat. Houdesheldt was immediately sworn in and took his seat with his fellow council members. With Houdesheldt as part of the Council, their first order of business was to select a Mayor. They collectively selected John Allard for Mayor. Allard will serve as Mayor for two years, until December 2020. Vice Mayor, Krista Bernasconi will then step in as Mayor for two years, until December 2022.
