Town Council

Members


Five council members are elected at large by the San Anselmo electorate for four-year terms. Elections are held in odd-numbered years, with three council members elected in one cycle and two in the alternate cycle. Annually, the five council members elect a mayor and vice mayor. Councilmembers are paid a monthly stipend of $300. They receive no other benefits from the Town.

Terms of Office for Officials Elected in the November 7, 2017 & November 5, 2019 Elections

At its regular meeting of March 14, 2017, the San Anselmo Town Council adopted Ordinance No. 1116, which moves the Town’s municipal elections from November of odd-numbered years to November of even-numbered years.  The change will be phased in by electing Town officers for 3-year terms during the next two election cycles and returning to 4-year terms in the November 2020 election. Accordingly, Town Council members, the Town Clerk and the Town Treasurer elected in the general municipal elections on November 7, 2017, and November 5, 2019, will serve 3-year terms.

As required by state law, the Marin County Board of Supervisors approved the Town’s change of election date at its meeting of April 25, 2017.  (Cal. Elect. Code § 10403.5).
