Mexico Beach finds new city clerk

The Mexico Beach City Council has found a new city clerk in Lynn Haven resident Sharon McGhee.

McGhee will replace Debbie McLeod who resigned her position in April.

At Tuesday’s regular meeting, Councilman Jack Mullen noted that there were 10 additional candidates that he believed should be considered for the position.

“We’ve been crippled for months now,” said Councilwoman Tanya Castro. “We need to make a decision and move forward.”

Since her resignation, McLeod has been working part-time for the city but had recently located full-time employment elsewhere and a more permanent solution was needed to keep the clerk’s responsibilities on track.

Councilmember Lanny Howell supported Castro’s opinion to move forward and made a formal motion to offer the position to McGhee.

Howell and Castro voted yes, while Mayor Al Cathey voted no.
