City Council Appoints Gus Morrison as New Mayor

Submitted By City of Fremont

At the Jan. 30 Special City Council meeting, the Fremont City Council appointed Gus Morrison as Fremont's new mayor to fill the vacancy in the Office of the Mayor after Mayor Bob Wasserman passed away on Dec. 29, 2011. Mayor Morrison was sworn into office on Jan. 31. He will serve as mayor for approximately 10 months until the results of the Nov. 6, 2012, General Municipal Election are certified.

The Fremont City Council received 14 applications from Fremont residents to fill the vacancy in the Office of the Mayor. At the Jan. 23 Special City Council meeting, the Council ranked the top six candidates to interview at the Jan. 30 Special Council meeting. After interviews were conducted, Councilmembers ranked each candidate. Mayor Morrison received the lowest score from the Council, which means he was ranked highest among the candidates.
