Jerry Clay seeking another stint on Atascadero council
December 11, 2012
With two years left on his council seat, O’Malley ran unopposed for mayor. Clay decided not to run for another term on the council which has set on since 1996. The two incumbents, Councilwoman Roberta Fonzi and Mayor Bob Kelley, were reelected.
Now Clay says he would like his council members to appoint him to fill O’Malley’s soon to be vacated seat.
In order to fill the seat, the council can nominate a person to fill the vacancy, determine an application process or call for a special election which is slated to cost between $35,000 and $85,000.
