It was on the closed session agenda last night. But the Santa Clara City Council did not announce the appointment of an Interim City Attorney.
It’s been over a month since the 49er Five fired former City Attorney Brian Doyle at the request of the team. It was for no cause.
Sources in other cities have told us that their deputy city attorneys are not applying. The current Santa Clara City Council looks “unprofessional” in the words of one source. Another said “it’s toxic.”
Even though they couldn’t make an appointment, the City Council did a couple productive things.
Jim Hohenshelt was appointed to the Senior Commission.
Ed Stocks was appointed to the Historical and Landmarks Commission. Cecily Cox and Ken Kratz were appointed to the eligibility list for the HLC commission.
Congratulations to the new commissioners.
