Councilman Warren named Sacramento vice mayor

Sacramento Councilman Allen Warren was named vice mayor on Tuesday night by his colleagues. Councilwoman Angelique Ashby was named mayor pro tem, a position she also held in 2014.

Mayor Kevin Johnson nominated both council members to the posts. The motion was approved unanimously by the council.

Warren will run City Council meetings this year in Johnson’s absence. Warren is in his first term on the council after getting elected in 2012 to represent north Sacramento.
