Because Supervisor Jacobs Gibson was unable to attend the Feb. 28 meeting, the Board of Supervisors postponed a vote originally scheduled for that meeting on whether to appoint a replacement for county Controller Tom Huening, who is retiring March 31, or to hold an election.
"They delayed the vote until she got back, and we're hoping that she will be back" by March 13, the rescheduled date, Ms. Irwin said. But even if she attends that meeting, it's likely she won't be working a full schedule at that point, she added.
Regarding the supervisor's recovery, "she's just really thankful that she caught it early," and encourages women to get mammograms, Ms. Irwin said.
Ms. Jacobs Gibson represents county residents of Menlo Park, Redwood City, East Palo Alto, and the unincorporated areas of North Fair Oaks and Oak Knoll. She will be termed out of office at the end of the year.
