Honoring Grotte
December 03, 2013, 05:00 AM

Samantha Weigel/Daily Journal

Brandt Grotte and his wife Kathy looked through the many honorary plaques he received from local, state and federal officials after he stepped down from the San Mateo City Council last night. Grotte spent five years as a planning commissioner before serving on the City Council for eight years and was recognized for his environmental sustainability efforts and dedicated public service. Grotte chose not to run for a third term in the Nov. 5 election and Joe Goethals was voted onto the council. Goethals was sworn in while Robert Ross was chosen as mayor and Maureen Freschet was appointed as deputy mayor.
