BACKGROUND
At the August 24, 2021 City Council meeting, the Council took action to declare a vacancy due to the resignation of Senior Advisory Commissioner Segovia creating a vacancy for a partial-term ending June 30, 2023.

The Council voted to place Jim Hohenshelt and Suresh Lokiah on that list and invite them back to reinterview should a vacancy occur. Staff reached out to both applicants to inquire if there was still an interest to serve on the Commission. Both Jim Hohenshelt and Suresh Lokiah affirmatively expressed an interest to serve on the commission and to continue in proceeding with the interview process.
