Tallman appointed to commission

The Ridgecrest City Council has appointed Wade Tallman to the Ridgecest Planning Commission to conclude a temporary domino effect on positions at City Hall.

Planning Commissioner Steven Morgan was appointed by the council to fill the position left vacant by Jason Patin, whose term expires in November 2014. That left Morgan’s position on the commission vacant for the same period of time. Mayor Dan Clark, who originally appointed Morgan to the commission, chose Tallman to finish the term.

Tallman was one of the 11 candidates who interviewed for the open seat on the council. After retiring from military service, he now makes his home in the IWV, works in the private sector and serves in the China Lake Rotary Club.
