FAIRFIELD — Thomas Geiger, assistant county counsel for Contra Costa County, was sworn in Tuesday as a Fairfield planning commissioner.

“He will bring a fresh perspective and a lot of new ideas and know-how,” Councilwoman Pam Bertani said at the City Council meeting.

Geiger spoke of the many major projects on the horizon for Fairfield.

His appointment follows Bertani and Councilwoman Catherine Moy interviewing of eight applicants for the post. The vacancy was created when commissioner Don McDonald’s term expired in June. McDonald, Alvina Sheeley, Blair Aas, Tamer Totah, Brian Thompson, Aaron Garcia and Thomas Ewen were interviewed along with Geiger.

“Don did an excellent job,” Moy said before the council meeting Tuesday. “He’s been a big friend to the community.”

Moy spoke about Geiger’s impressive resume. Bertani referred to the quality of the applicants for the planning commissioner post and said, “I had a tough time making this choice.”

The seven-member Planning Commission advises the City Council on land use.
