Claremont City Council Kern bids farewell

Anita Kern's final motion as a Claremont council member was for adjournment after being thanked by council members for her many years of service to the community. Michelle Welch will be taking Kern's place on the council next year. Kern thanked fellow council members for their support for Claremont and encouraged residents to attend council meetings.
