McCaskill takes over as mayor in Belvedere

Bob McCaskill is the new mayor of Belvedere, taking the reins from Marty Winter in the City Council’s annual rotating of seats. Nancy Kemnitzer was also named vice mayor by a unanimous vote of the council at its July 9 meeting. Councilmembers typically hold the mayoral post on a yearly rotation beginning each July. Belvedere has a council-manager government system in which the mayor and vice mayor are nominated by the members of the elected, volunteer council. The titles are mostly ceremonial, as City Manager Craig Middleton is a CEO-like professional hired by the board to oversee the bulk of the city’s daily tasks. (Elliot Karlan photo)
