About the Council
s2m2ns elect a Mayor and all nine Council members on the first Tuesday in March of every fourth year. To be elected, a candidate must receive a majority (50% + 1) of the votes cast; if no candidate garners a majority, a run-off election is held between the two candidates that received the most votes. Runoff elections are held on the second Tuesday of April. Mayor and Council receive oath of office and their new terms begin on the first Monday after the second Tuesday of April. The inauguration ceremonies have historically been held at the Tivoli Theatre. In April of each year, the Council also elects a Chair and Vice-Chair.
2016-2017 Chair: Moses Freeman, Councilman, District 8
