It’s a mistake! But you knew that. The writer meant city councilor. As the American Heritage dictionary explains:

Council and councilor refer principally to a deliberative assembly (such as a city council or student council), its work, and its membership. Counsel and counselor pertain chiefly to advice and guidance in general and to a person (such as a lawyer or camp counselor) who provides it.”
