Mary Tomlan Will Not Seek Another Term On Ithaca Common Council
Mary Tomlan (D-3rd Ward) announced Saturday that after a six-year tenure on the City of Ithaca Common Council, she will not seek another term this fall. The most pressing issues facing her successor, she noted in a press release, are city planning, the implementation of housing fund initiatives between Tompkins County and the University, and dealing with budgetary concerns in the current economy. During her time on the Ithaca Common Council, Tomlan chaired the Planning & Economic Development Committee during her first five years and then continued to serve on that committee for the duration of her tenure. She also worked on the Collegetown Vision Task Force and the Collegetown Vision Implementation Committee, among others.
