SO MOVED ... After 14 years of playing supporting roles at City Council meetings, departing City Clerk Beth Minor this week found herself in the spotlight for a change. Minor, who has spent the past five years as city clerk and who is concluding her term at the end of July, received a round of virtual applause from the council and a special resolution of appreciation from the city. Several City Council alumni, including state Assembly member Marc Berman and Karen Holman, a member of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District board of directors, lauded Minor for her positive attitude, patience and ability to stay neutral. Council member Alison Cormack called her "gracious and unruffled." "Even COVID-19 didn't ruffle you and — POOF! — here we were on Zoom ahead of everyone else." Minor thanked council members who she interacted with over the years and said she has enjoyed working with the public and the city. "I was able to play Switzerland and be neutral throughout, and that passed on to my employees also," Minor said. Shortly after passing the resolution, the council approved a contract with Lesley Milton, who will take over for Minor as city clerk in late July.
