New Roles and Faces at the Ladera Ranch Civic Council

With a series of recent resignations and elections, you’d be forgiven for not knowing who was currently serving on the Ladera Ranch Civic Council.  It doesn’t help when the website hasn’t been updated in nearly six weeks and still shows the Council members as of last December.  However, at the Council’s January 20th meeting, the Board elected new officers and appointed two new members.  Jett McCormick, the one constant since the Council’s inception in 2008, was re-elected as Chairman for the third time.  Carlo Tomaino, who heads the Civic Council’s Local Governance Task Force, was elected Vice-Chairman.  Scott Weigerber and Todd Stearns were appointed as new members to fill the existing vacancies.  Both Scott and Todd are long time residents of Ladera Ranch.  Congratulations to all.
