Colusa City Council welcomes new member, taps Kelleher as new mayor

The City of Colusa is back to having a full, five-person council for the first time since former councilwoman Marilyn Acree resigned on May 17.

Newly elected councilmember Dave Markss took his seat at the dais for the first time at last week’s meeting, after being sworn in by city clerk Shelley Kittle. Greg Ponciano and Kirk Kelleher, who were reelected, were also sworn in at the Dec. 6 meeting.

The new council got right to work. Their first order of business was the 2017 city council reorganization. Kirk Kelleher was nominated by Greg Ponciano to serve as mayor, and the council approved the selection unanimously. Kelleher returned the favor, nominating Ponciano to serve as mayor pro-tem, which was also approved 5-0.

“I’ll start by saying that I had a wonderful year standing as mayor for the City of Colusa,” Tom Reische said before turning the gavel over to Kelleher. “I’m very certain that Kirk Kelleher will follow in our past mayor’s footsteps and do a wonderful job. I’m looking forward to it.”

Kelleher expressed his gratitude at the nomination, saying that he was honored to serve as the mayor of Colusa, and that he would work to the best of his abilities “to do as good a job as Tom (Reische) did.”
