Longtime Vacaville resident Jeanette Wylie has been holding what she calls “listening on the lawn” sessions as part of her campaign for the City Council.
Wylie, 65, is seeking the District 6 seat. Appointed Councilman Raymond Beaty, who is serving as vice mayor, is the incumbent living in the district. The election is for a two-year term, with four-year terms beginning in 2022.
Wylie, a retired teacher, likes the new format that increased the council from five members to seven, including six members who represent specific districts, and the mayor’s post, which is elected on a citywide vote.
