Passing of the gavel in Marianna Featured

Tuesday night, Mayor Kenny Hamilton handed the gavel to incoming Mayor Pro Tem John Roberts. Commissioners Allen Ward, Travis Ephraim and Rico Williams were looking on and smiling as the gavel was passed.

Following the conclusion of the meeting, Mayor Roberts told those attending what an honor it was to be the mayor of Marianna, “I want to thank ya’ll for electing me as the mayor of Marianna.  Being the mayor is quite an honor. I think we have just a great thing here. I think we have all accomplished just so much since we have been on this committee.  I just appreciate the way we all work together and I want us to continue to work together as a commission and also work with the county in any way we can in seeing the city and the county move forward.  Normally anything that is good for the city is good for the county and anything that is good for the county is good for the city.  I think we need to keep that in mind as we work together and hopefully the county will get a new manager and will be able to move forward with that.”
