Title
Board/Commission Appointment(s) - Art in Public Places Board.
Recommended Action
I nominate Elena Perez and Britton Donharl to fill two vacancies on the Art in Public Places Board and move that Council appoint the two nominees to the vacant position(s) as follows: Elena Perez to be appointed to a partial term ending March 24, 2015 and then for a full term ending March 24, 2017; Britton Donharl to be appointed to a full term beginning March 25, 2015 and ending March 24, 2017.
Body
The purpose of this item is to fill one current vacancy and one upcoming vacancy on the Art in Public Places Board.

The current vacancy represents an unexpired term vacated by the resignation of Anna Marie Solomon. The upcoming vacancy will represent an expired term for Ken Nebel, ending March 24, 2015. Mr. Nebel has served two full terms in succession and is not eligible for re-appointment.

The applicants for this position are: Elena Perez [D] and Britton Donharl [D]. The interview committee believes that both applicants are well qualified and will make good additions to the board. The membership options (one current vacancy and one upcoming vacancy) were discussed with the applicants. Both understand the options and are in agreement with the interview panel's recommendation to appoint Elena Perez to fill the current vacancy and to appoint Britton Donharl to the upcoming vacancy, beginning in March 2015.

Party affiliations are noted as [D] Democrat, [R] Republican, [I] Independent, [G] Green, [L] Libertarian, [DTS] Declined to State, and [N] Not Registered to Vote.

This seven member board (5 regular members plus 2 provision members) has 2-year staggered terms. It is currently composed as shown on Attachment A.

Appointing any of the nominees will not violate the County Charter restriction concerning political party majorities on Boards and Commissions.
