Gary Malloy, a regular at the Stockton City Council meetings and one of the few who CM Bob Dies and the council actually listen to during public comment, told me he is considering applying for Councilwoman Susan Eggman’s seat, if/when she advances on to the state Assembly.
It’ll be interesting to see who lines up from District 5. Doesn’t Ralph Lee White also live in the district? Who else?
The process is this: Once a council seats comes open, residents apply, as if they were applying to run in an election. But what’s different is that they don’t go on the ballot. Each candidate will interview with the council, which votes on the person who will complete the remaining term.
