Good morning, Mayor Ponto
There are no new faces in the council chambers this term, just a new seating arrangement! (Alderman Nelson might be feeling a little lonely though, since his former seat mate moved up to the mayor's chair.)
There seems to be a lot of good will behind this new mayor, which is a very refreshing change. I think people are looking forward to having a mayor who really is the mayor.
Mayor Ponto has my good will as well; I wish him much success. The next 4 years won't be easy.
Post Script: Big night for District 4, Alderman Nelson reelected as Common Council president.
Details on Ponto swearing in Tuesday night, " 'This is truly what I wanted to do at this point in my life,' Ponto told the crowd after being sworn in by Judge Jeffrey Warchol. 'I will do the very best I can. I will not let you down.' "
