Murrieta looks to fill council seat

Murrieta is accepting applications from residents for a soon-to-be-vacant city council seat.

The city has decided to appoint someone to replace Mayor Scott Vinton, who submitted his resignation at the Sept. 21 council meeting.

Vinton, who represents District Five, will step down on December 21, exactly one year before his four-year term will end.

He was first elected to the council in November 2018.

“Mayor Vinton has represented Murrieta during a challenging period and he has done so with compassion and care for this community,” City Manager Kim Summers said in a statement. “On behalf of the City of Murrieta team, we thank him for his service and wish him the best with his upcoming movie.”

Any District Five resident interested in filling the vacancy should contact the City Clerk’s Office at (951) 461-6031, email [email protected], or visit

By law, cities must fill a vacant council seat within 60 days of a person’s departure, either by appointment or a special election.
