TRINIDAD- Tom Davies’ term as a Trinidad City Council Member came to an end in December. Now, the newest council member has been sworn in.
The council unanimously voted for David Winnett to fill the vacancy. Winnett moved to the North Coast from Illinois in 2004. He enjoys building boats during his spare time and he owns a wine vineyard in Willow Creek. Winnett will serve the next four years as a Trinidad City Council Member and he says he plans to support local businesses. He also says he will work to preserve the area’s natural beauty.
"The beautiful ocean shorelines that we have, I want to make sure that I make a contribution to keeping that natural beauty the way it is for future generations. It's a beautiful place. I don't want that to change," said Winnett.
