Colton City Clerk Leaving

(May 16)  Colton‘s city clerk and records manager, Eileen C. Gomez, will depart Colton on May 22 to accept the position of city clerk with the city of Laguna Niguel.
Gomez was first elected to the Colton city clerk position in 2008 and reelected in 2012. She was given the added duties of records manager in 2010. She was not scheduled to stand for reelection until 2016.  The Colton City Council will appoint an interim city clerk and seek to fill the position with a special election to correspond to the November election when the mayor and  council members from districts 1, 2 and 4 are up for voter selection.
Gomez was chosen for the Laguna Niguel post on the strength of her experience, which included her work in Colton as well as with the city of San Bernardino, where she previously worked in the public works, engineering and code enforcement departments.
