The city council has appointed six Temple City residents to three city commissions for a two-year term.

The city of Temple City received 47 applications for six positions on the Parks and Recreation, Planning, and Public Safety commission.

An ad hoc committee composed of Councilmembers Carl Blum and Tom Chavez narrowed the pool of applications to 20, and 16 were interviewed by the full city council at a special meeting on June 25, 2012.

Planning Commissioner Tom O’Leary was re-appointed to another two-year term.

Steve Curran was also named to the Planning commission. Mr. Curran joins O’Leary, as well as John Cordes, Patrick Horton, and Albert Leung.

Public Safety Commissioner Patricia Shen was also among the four finalists for the Planning commission, but was not chosen.

Parks and Recreation Commissioner Pam Vigil was also re-appointed, while Commissioner Peggy Miller was denied reappointment. Instead, the city council selected Donna Georgino to fill Miller’s position.

Ms. Georgino joins Vigil, Dan Arrighi, Nanette Fish, and Matthew Wong.

The city council also re-appointed Public Safety Commissioner Ousama Nimri. Incumbent Commissioner Shen did not reapply for a position.

Along with re-appointing Nimri, the city council selected Danny Redmond to fill Shen’s spot. Mr. Redmond joins Brian Baudendistel, Jim Clift, and Nicholas Stratis.

All selected commissioners will be sworn in at the next city council meeting on July 3. The terms for the new appointments expire in June 2014.
