Belvedere's city manager announces retirement

By MATTHEW HOSE

_______

Belvedere's city manager says she will retire at the end of this year.
Mary Neilan cited an increasingly long commute from her Sonoma home along with a desire to see more of her children and grandchildren as the reasons she decided to leave the city's top post on Dec. 31.
"It's really external to the city," Neilan said. "The issue of a commute is something that isn't mine alone. It really is a lifestyle issue — it takes up so much time of your day and your week that it tends to detract from the satisfaction you get from the work itself."

_______

A disbarred Belvedere lawyer has pleaded guilty to defrauding nearly a dozen victims out of $2.5 million in a fake investment scheme and now faces 20 years in prison and some $5 million in fines.
James Seltzer, 67, entered his plea to one count of securities fraud in federal court Sept. 14. As a part of the plea deal, U.S. attorneys prosecuting the case dropped four other securities-fraud charges, a mail-fraud charge and three money-laundering charges, which combined could have carried a maximum of 120 additional years in prison.
Seltzer was ordered to appear before a federal judge in San Jose on Feb. 15, 2017, for sentencing.
According to the plea deal, he admitted that he defrauded more than 10 people into purchasing and selling securities over a period of nearly four years, between October 2007 and May 2011.

_______

A revamped plan to bring market-rate housing and a private high school to the former site of the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Strawberry failed to win the support of the Strawberry Design Review Board at its Sept. 12 meeting, where board members expressed significant concerns about the project's proposed changes to the Strawberry Community Plan.
The board voted unanimously to continue its review of the application to a future meeting, citing the need for more community engagement in the development of the proposal, which board chair Isis Spinola-Schwartz called "flawed at best, incomplete at a minimum."
