WALNUT CREEK -- The City Council will elect a new mayor Tuesday from its own ranks.
In the annual tradition, the first meeting of December will be dedicated to choosing a new mayor. It's expected that the current Mayor Pro Tem Kristina Lawson will become the next mayor, and then council members will choose the next mayor pro tem.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in council chambers, City Hall, 1666 N. Main Street.
Outgoing Mayor Cindy Silva will complete her second turn as mayor and make some comments before handing the gavel to Lawson, who will then make comments. The meeting will then adjourn.
