Since moving to Belvedere six years ago, Sally Wilkinson has worked diligently behind the scenes on many prominent city initiatives. She helped roll out the Yellow Bus Challenge, has contributed to the city’s planned update to its seawalls and chaired the most recent campaign to renew Measure E, which allowed the city to continue to fund its fire services. That breadth of experience, she says, has prepared her for her next, more high-profile step into civic life: a stint on the Belvedere City Council. “I just decided that I had done enough and understood enough of the areas I’d been working on that I would feel comfortable stepping into the ring,” Wilkinson says. The City Council at its July 13 teleconference meeting voted 4-0 to appoint Wilkinson, 50, to its vacant fifth seat. She was the only applicant to replace longtime Councilmember Marty Winter, who stepped down in June to move to Tiburon. Wilkinson will serve the remainder of Winter’s term, through November 2022.
