Wyman, 84, nominated by recently elected county Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, won unanimous approval along with a handful of other appointees to various county-run commissions.
Widowed when her husband suffered a heart attack early in 1973, Wyman, by then the mother of three, tried unsuccessfully to win back her old council seat in 1975. She didn't make it past the primary and the winner was Zev Yaroslavsky. He later moved to the Board of Supervisors and was recently replaced by Kuehl when term limits forced his board retirement.
Outspoken and energetic, Wyman, a longtime Bel-Air resident and arts patron, continued to make her mark in politics long after her time in elected office was up.
