Cathey, Mullen and Castro officially welcomed new council members Mary Blackburn and Jeff Tendler who were sworn in prior to last week’s pre-agenda meeting.

“I appreciate the opportunity to serve the residents of Mexico Beach,” said Blackburn, who defeated incumbent Gary Woodham in the April election. “I consider it an honor. I’m looking forward to a bright year.”

Tendler beat Bill McGlothlin for former Councilman Bobby Pollock’s chair. After serving two terms, Pollock did not run for reelection.

“I’m proud to be here,” said Tendler. “I’m looking forward to serving the city and doing things the right way.”

Castro kept her seat, defeating challenger Tom Bailey.

Castro said, “Thanks for giving me a second opportunity to represent you.”
