>>Reading Councilwoman Appointed to President's Seat
(Reading, PA) -- Reading City Councilwoman Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz has been voted to be the new council president. Her approval for the position came unanimously at Monday's council meeting. Cepeda-Freytiz replaces Jeffrey S. Waltman Senior, who died June 13th. Cepeda-Freytiz - who owns the Mi Casa Su Casa Café on Penn Street -- has served District 6 for three years. Someone else must now be appointed to serve out her term as she can't hold two positions on the council.
