The Shelton City Council elected a new mayor, Councilmember Kevin Dorcy, and re-elected Deputy Mayor Deidre Peterson at their meeting on January 7, 2020.
The elections came after City Clerk Donna Nault swore in Councilmembers James Boad, Kathy McDowell, and Deidre Peterson. Councilmember Boad fills the seat of former Councilmember Gary Cronce, who retired last year.
Deputy Mayor Peterson read a letter from former Mayor Bob Rogers announcing his resignation from the Shelton City Council, effective January 7, 2020. In his letter, Mayor Rogers thanked Shelton residents “for their trust and support.”
City staff and the Council are beginning the recruitment and application process to fill former Mayor Rogers’ seat. A special Council meeting will be held to conduct interviews, and will be open to members of the public.
