News Update: Williams elected mayor, Lucente vice mayor

Item by Chris Graham

Tim Williams was unanimously elected mayor, but the vote for vice mayor was the first in what we can assume will be a series of 3-2 votes from the new Waynesboro City Council.

Frank Lucente was elected vice mayor in a party-line vote. Lorie Smith was defeated in her bid by a similar 3-2 party-line vote.

Mike Hamp was tapped to serve as the interim city manager in a 5-0 vote.

More from the city-council reorganization meeting later this morning.
