SUISUN CITY — A very happy Lori Wilson, Suisun City’s newest City Council member, was sworn into office Tuesday as friends and family applauded and snapped pictures.

“I am just excited and thrilled to serve the community in this way and work to bring continued success to Suisun City,” Wilson said.

Supporters such as Lawrence Woods wished Wilson well. “She is going to do a great job,” Woods said.

Solano County Supervisor Linda Seifert said Wilson shows wisdom, has great heart and will be accessible to her constituents.

Sam Derting, who Wilson is succeeding, was presented with an award of appreciation from Mayor Pete Sanchez and thanks from residents such as Dave Harrison, who said Derting’s eight years of service “has been amazing for the city.”

“I thank you all for your support and it has been an honor to serve the city,” Derting said. “Lori will do a good job and she ran a good campaign.”

Wilson was the top vote-getter this time around in a three-way race for two seats on the City Council. She and incumbent Mike Segala got the two seats, beating out incumbent Derting.

She ran unsuccessfully for the council two years ago. She stayed involved with the city, getting appointed to the city Parks and Recreation Commission as well as helping to form the Suisun City Community Services Foundation, which raised money to bring back the city’s fireworks festival.

Wilson said earlier that scrutinizing the city’s budget is a top priority for her and to bring more businesses into Suisun City so residents won’t have to travel to Fairfield or Vacaville to shop. She also said she wants to partner with nonprofits to create more programs for children and teens.

Mike McMurry was sworn in as the new city treasurer, replacing his wife Jeanie McMurry, who declined to run for re-election after serving 28 years as city treasurer. Linda Hobson was also sworn in after her re-election as city clerk.

    I would like to thank Sam Derting for his service. Sometimes being a councilmember can be a thankless job- so Thank You Mr. Derting- really. I am looking forward to having Lori Wilson on our council. She loves Suisun- I know this about her and her hard work and caring attitude when making council decisions for the citizens will reflect this. Blessings Lori.
