City Beat Gilroy City Council Changes W ith Mayor Don Gage’s retire- ment at the end of the 2015 came a lot of changes to the Gilroy City Council. In January, the Council appointed Perry Woodward as the new Mayor to serve the remaining term which expires November 2016. A few weeks later the City Council conducted interviews to fill the council vacancy created when Woodward was appointed Mayor. The Council Mayor Perry Woodward interviewed eight individuals each of whom expressed their desire to contribute to the future success of Gilroy. After the interview process, the Council appointed Daniel Harney to fill the vacancy as the newest Gilroy City Council member. The Council then voted to appoint Peter Leroe-Munoz as the Mayor Pro Tempore. Congratulations to all those involved in the changes. We are looking forward to a productive and exciting 2016!
