Ex-Library Foundation President John Scarborough to be honored as Belvedere Citizen of the Year

John Scarborough is working to leave the world a better place than he found it. Between his efforts helping raise millions of dollars for the Belvedere-Tiburon Library expansion, contributing time and money to an expanding Bay Area education program for first-generation college students and supporting his wife Betsy’s documentary film projects in Russia and Ireland, Scarborough is doing what he can to affect positive change. The 30-year Belvedere resident has been named the city’s Citizen of the Year for 2019. He will be honored at Belvedere’s 41st annual Town Meeting, set for 7 p.m. Jan. 27 at City Hall. In a departure from past years, the city did not name a Citizen of the Year Emeritus for 2019.
