Andy Klein was unanimously appointed the new mayor of San Carlos last June, succeeding the late Omar Ahmad, who died suddenly of a heart attack that spring.
As Vice-Mayor, Klein was poised to take on the position. He put his name in the running for mayor after the District Attorney announced he had decided not to press criminal charges against him after his arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.
The unanimous appointment to mayor was the fulfillment of a dream, Klein said, for as long as he can remember.
A San Carlos native, Klein attended high school in the city and has served on the council since 2009. He is the member of several boards and committees including the fire board, Rotary club and is the Vice-President of the San Carlos Villagers.
