The council also recognized outgoing Town Council member Craig Penfold. Penfold has served six years on the Town Council — most recently as mayor pro tem — and on the Board of Adjustment and finance committee.

“We’re here to honor the new people, so I’m excited about that,” Penfold said. “This is a great day for us.”

“It’s a real privilege to have you all as friends; that’s the most important part of the whole service in this town is we have so many good friends now that I would’ve never had before: the chiefs and the judges and all the staff,” he continued. “It’s a great place to be, and it’s a great place to live.”

Leland White, who was unable to attend last week’s special canvassing meeting, will be installed during the May 21 Town Council meeting.
