A short recap of last night’s City Council Meeting. Congratulations to Penny Coffey as she was selected as the new Deputy Mayor. The Mayor swore in newly appointed Councilmember Kevin Ballard after receiving enough votes to serve the remaining term of Position #6 which was held by former CM Eric Corp. The City wishes to thank Lee Chase for applying for the same vacancy and his desire to benefit the community.
Officer Hilary Gordon and Officer Wally Noel were sworn in by the Mayor. These individuals are highly qualified and respected in the law enforcement community and we look forward to having them a part of our City.
Congratulations to Ms. Kelly Spears on her promotion to Fire Captain! Ms. Spears will serve as DuPont’s first female Captain. She has been with the City for 5 years as a firefighter. Captain Spears finished #1 in the department testing.
Mr. William Lee Jackson was appointed to the Planning Commission and Ms. Maame Bassaw was appointed to the Parks and Recreation Agency. Thank you to you both for getting involved and striving to make a difference.
