ZAP elects new officers

Thursday, July 9, 2015 by Tyler Whitson

The Zoning and Platting Commission elected a new set of officers Tuesday at its first meeting under City Council’s new 10-1 system of representation. Former Parliamentarian Gabriel Rojas has taken over as chair, Commissioner Jackie Goodman is now vice chair and new commissioners Louisa Brinsmade and Ann Denkler have been elected as secretary and parliamentarian, respectively. Rojas took the opportunity to honor former Chair Betty Baker, who was the first chair of the commission when it formed in 2001 and retired in May. “I appreciate all her teachings and everything she’s done for this commission,” Rojas said. “I’ll try and fill those shoes. I probably will never be able to, even though her feet are smaller than mine.”
