The city of has four openings for people who want to serve on
the Tracy Arts Commission.
The seven-member commission plans and coordinates
arts-related events and activities in the city, including the summertime Music
in the Park concerts in Lincoln Park and the Multi-Cultural Festival recently
held at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts.
The commission is expected to
take a greater role in exhibits and classes at the Grand Theatre. The extent to
which the commission gets involved will depend on upcoming recommendations by a
Tracy City Council subcommittee, which was formed two weeks ago to study and
review city policies related to the center’s operation.
None of the seven commission members have resigned, but four
commissioners’ terms will expire at the end of the year. All four, including
Leona Willis, Barbara Howard, Mercedes Silveira and Jack Elliott, are eligible
to reapply, and the city regularly accepts applications to see if others are
