Claremont Council to select new mayor
The Claremont City Council will hold a special reorganization meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 19 at 5:30 p.m. A new mayor and mayor pro tem will be selection.
In contrast to other cities where a mayor is elected by a vote of the people, Claremont has long held a tradition of council members selecting the mayor from amongst themselves. Mayor Larry Schroeder will likely pass the torch to one of his fellow council members on Tuesday after serving a year as Claremont’s mayor.
In addition to the reorganization, Mr. Schroeder and Councilmember Corey Calaycay will be sworn back into office following their re-election earlier this month. The ceremony takes place in the City Council Chamber at 225 W. Second St.
