By Staff Reports

Peachtree Corners - During its March 15th meeting, the City Council unanimously elected Councilmember Weare Gratwick (Post 6), as Mayor Pro Tem.

In the position, Gratwick will assume mayoral duties in the event of the mayor’s absence.

“It’s just good practice to have someone designated as mayor pro tem in place,” said Mayor Mason. “Councilmember Gratwick has been on the council since the city was founded, and I think the councilmembers made a solid choice when they nominated and approved Weare for the position.”

Councilmember Alex Wright (Post 3) nominated Gratwick and Council members Jeanne Aulbach, Lorri Christopher and Mayor Mason voted to approve the nomination. Councilmember Phil Sadd did not attend the meeting.

“It’s really an honor to be selected,” said Gratwick. “I’m pleased that the mayor and my fellow councilmembers have put their trust in me by selecting me as mayor pro tem.
