Regarding the Rotary Club of Oakley, I previously posted that with the election of Hugh Henderson and Shannon Shaw to the Oakley City Council, there would be six people in key City of Oakley governmental positions who are members of the Rotary Club of Oakley. Actually, there would be eight members of the Rotary Club of Oakley in key governmental positions in the City of Oakley. They would be: City of Oakley City Council Aaron Meadows – Vice Mayor; Shannon Shaw – Councilmember; Hugh Henderson – Councilmember; Josh McMurray – City Manager; Diablo Water District Scott Pastor – Director, Board of Directors; Dan Muelrath – General Manager; Ironhouse Sanitary District Chris Lauritzen – Director, Board of Directors; Peter Zirkle – Director, Board of Directors.
Yes, there is a situation where Shannon Shaw, Candidate for City Council, District 4, is the spouse of Jason Shaw. He will be sworn into office in December as a Director Board of Directors, Diablo Water District. I mention the above because, in my opinion, the residents of Oakley should be aware of how the candidates affiliate with others while elected members of the City of Oakley governmental positions.
Yes, the founders of the Rotary Club of Oakley were Bryan Montgomery, former city manager of Oakley, and Dave Wahl, a Brentwood resident. Below are two articles, one concerning the City of Santa Clara and the other with the City of Los Angeles, where relationships with others outside the council chambers have been a concern.
