Fredericks takes her fifth turn as Tiburon mayor

Tiburon Town Councilmember Alice Fredericks (left) was elected by her colleagues Dec. 6 to serve as mayor for the next year, while Councilmember Holli Thier was elected vice mayor.

Town Councilmember Alice Fredericks has stepped into the role of Tiburon’s mayor for an unprecedented fifth time, while colleague Holli Thier has been named vice mayor.

Both women were elected by their colleagues in unanimous votes at the council’s Dec. 6 meeting, though Thier’s election came after a failed motion by Fredericks to name Councilmember Isaac Nikfar to the seat.

Fredericks, whose current sixth term on the council makes her the longest-tenured councilmember in Tiburon history, succeeds Jack Ryan, who remains on the board. Councilmembers typically hold the mayoral post on a yearly rotation; Thier’s election as vice mayor puts her in line to be mayor for the second time December 2024 — though she’d first have to win re-election to the council, as her current four-year term expires next November.

Thier previously served as vice mayor under Fredericks in 2020 and as mayor in 2021.
