The Town's governing body is the Town Council, made up of seven members including the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem. Each Councilmember is elected to represent an election district, and the Mayor is elected to represent the Town at large.
Once elected, each Councilmember takes an oath of office. It’s an official statement of a commitment they made when they started their journey to Election Day. It’s a commitment to public service at the local level – listening to residents and business owners and studying research so they can make big decisions that impact a community they care deeply about. Since the first Council was elected more than a century ago, there have certainly been differing opinions. What remains true among all those who have served in this role is their desire to serve this Town in a way that makes the community proud.
