Sentinel staff report–
The City Council on Thursday night selected two members from its ranks to serve one-year terms as mayor and vice mayor of Citrus Heights during 2020.

Jeff Slowey replaces Jeannie Bruins as mayor for the upcoming year, and is joined by Steve Miller who will serve as vice mayor.

“I would just like to thank everyone who has made this a really memorable year for me as your mayor,” said outgoing Mayor Bruins, calling her latest term “the busiest one that I’ve had” out of a total of four terms as mayor.

The five-member council annually votes in a new mayor and vice mayor from among its ranks each December.

This will be Slowey’s fourth time serving as the city’s mayor. He most recently served as mayor in 2017, along with terms in 2007 and 2012.

Slowey was first appointed to the council in 2003 to complete the term of then-Mayor Bill Hughes and won election the following year. He is up for re-election in November, where he will face Councilman Bret Daniels in a race for a single spot in a newly created council district.
