Havre de Grace Mayor William T. Martin announced he will nominate Cassandra B.Y. Tomarchio to fill the current vacant city council seat.
Martin will make the nomination at the Monday night’s regularly scheduled city council meeting, according to an announcement from City Hall.
If confirmed by the five council members, Tomarchio will take the seat vacated by last month’s resignation of Steve Gamatoria, who stepped down to become the mayor’s chief of staff.
Tomarchio will serve the remainder of Gamatoria’s term, which ends May 21, 2018.
Tomarchio has held senior-level management positions in both the private and public sector, working within the field of communications and public policy, according to the announcement. She has a bachelor’s degree in politics from Ursinus College in Pennsylvania.
She currently serves as a management analyst for the U.S. Army CECOM Software Engineering Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
“I have had the privilege of knowing Cassandra Tomarchio for a very long time. I believe her views, and positions are consistent with our citizens," said Martin in a statement.
“I have always respected her devotion to our community, most notably her tireless efforts advocating for a new middle/high school,” the mayor said. “In addition to her community work, Cassandra possesses a high level of professionalism she has developed from her many years of experience working in senior policy positions.
