Information on the June 7, 2022 General Municipal and Special Elections:

At their regular meeting on March 21, 2022, and a special meeting on March 24, 2022, the City Council voted to appoint three new members to the City Council and cancel the June 7, 2022 General Municipal and Special elections.

Prior to this, Jim served on numerous community boards including the Mill Valley Emergency Preparedness Commission, Mill Valley Soccer Club as Board President, MV Little League, Tam High School Boosters as Board President, and the Board of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival.

Stephen Burke (Councilmember-Elect)

Stephen Burke was appointed on September 1, 2021 to fill a Council vacancy until the City’s next election. He has been appointed to a 4-year term. Prior to his appointment Stephen served on Mill Valley’s Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as the 2021 Marin County Civil Grand Jury and as Mill Valley’s representative on the Transportation Authority of Marin Citizen Oversight Committee.

Max Perrey (Councilmember-Elect)

Max Perrey has been appointed to a 4-year term. Max serves as the Chair of the City’s Emergency Preparedness Commission, Co-Chair of Sustainable Mill Valley, and serves on the Oversight Committee of the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority.
