The City Council of Temple City appointed former Parks and Recreation commissioner and Planning Commissioner Cynthia Sternquist to the City Council early this evening.
Sternquist, who ran in the 2007 city council elections, was appointed by a 3-1 vote. Councilman Tom Chavez cast the lone dissenting vote.
Three other nominees were also considered. They include former Temple City councilman Dan Arrighi, former Planning commissioner Carl Blum and businessman Thomas “Guy” DeMarco.
The Temple City Voice will publish a more lengthy story at a later time.
