Boulder City Council Selects Sam Weaver as New Mayor

Council selected a new mayor, mayor pro tem at Nov. 19 meeting

Boulder City Council selected Sam Weaver as its next mayor Tuesday night. Bob Yates was also selected as mayor pro tem at the first regular meeting of the new council following the Nov. 5 election.

Four new council members were elected in November: Rachel Friend, four-year term; Junie Joseph, four-year term; Adam Swetlik, two-year term; and Mark Wallach, two-year term. Council members Aaron Brockett and Bob Yates were both reelected and will serve four-year terms. They were sworn in for their terms Tuesday morning.

They join Mirabai Kuk Nagle, Sam Weaver and Mary D. Young to form the nine-member 2019-2021 Boulder City Council.

Council members are elected at large and represent the entire city. City Council members are elected to four-year or two-year terms depending how many votes they receive.

The City of Boulder has a council-manager form of government. Under this form of government, the elected City Council sets the policies for the operation of the Boulder government. The administrative responsibility of the city rests with the city manager who is appointed by the City Council.

The city thanks outgoing council members Suzanne Jones, Cindy Carlisle and Lisa Morzel for this service to the community. Jones served as mayor from 2015 to 2019.
