[ARCHIVED] Council declares intent to appoint Kushner

The City Council this evening announced its intent to appoint former mayor Sam Kushner to fill on an interim basis the seat vacated by Councilman Adam Tomer.

The appointment is scheduled to be officially voted on at the City Council’s next regular meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, July 7. If appointed, Kushner will serve on the City Council until a special election can be held in November.

Kushner was elected to the City Council in 1976 and was re-elected in 1980 and 1984. He served as mayor from 1986 to 1988. A native of Danville, he is an attorney and practiced law in Danville for 38 years before his retirement.

The City Council’s announcement of intent was made at a special work session. During the work session, the Council went into a closed meeting as allowed by state law to discuss possible action to appoint an interim Council member.

Tomer announced in late May that he was resigning his seat effective June 30, saying in a statement that he has accepted a job elsewhere that will not allow him “the time or ability to serve the citizens of Danville.”

Tomer was initially elected to City Council in 2006, and his current term was slated to end June 30, 2022.
