Norma Campos Kurtz was appointed to the Anaheim City Council to represent District 4 on Jan. 24.

Campos Kurtz is set to be sworn in as the District 4 representative and join the City Council at its Feb. 7 meeting.

Campos Kurtz recently served for eight years as a commissioner on Housing and Community Development Commission, which advises the City Council on community development and use of federal housing funding.

She is currently a board member for nonprofit Anaheim Beautiful, where she is committee chair for the annual Holiday Lights contest, which promotes neighborhood pride by recognizing homes that stand out with decorations. 

Campos Kurtz is a 20-year resident of Anaheim. She lives in District 4 with her husband Ken.

Anaheim’s District 4 seat was made vacant by the December resignation of former Council member Avelino Valencia.

In November, Valencia was elected to the California Assembly representing the 68th district, which includes Anaheim.

The City Council voted on Dec. 20 to move forward with an appointment as called for by Anaheim's governing city charter.

Per Anaheim’s charter, the City Council had until Feb. 2 to appoint a representative to fill the District 4 vacancy.

If the Council had not made an appointment, a special election would have been required at an estimated city cost of $206,000 to $227,000.

Until Council Member-appointee Campos Kurtz is sworn in, residents and businesses are welcome to reach out to the city manager’s office, the mayor’s office or any Council member for help or assistance.
