Mayor Craig Weaver, Mayor Pro Tempore Christopher Widuch, Council Members F. Daniel Prickett, Maryanne Connelly, and Klaus Said comprise the Town’s sixteenth administration.
Mayor Weaver has announced he will not be running for another term. As we prepare for a new chapter, we reflect on each administration’s responsibility in leading this community and the rewarding work it takes to fulfill that charge. Learn More
