New Mayor In Jerome


By Joey Martin

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Back on November 5th, voters around the state took to the poles and voted on new elected officials.

Over in Jerome, the big one was for city Mayor.

In the end it was Dave Davis taking the top spot.

On Tuesday, inside the Jerome City Council Chambers former Mayor John Shine stepped down and Davis was sworn in.

I caught up with Davis before his swearing in and got a little insight on how he's feeling about his new elected position.

And also where he sees the city of Jerome going into the future.

"Somewhat nerve racking but I'm excited, I'm ready to do this. It's been a long time since the election a couple of months... and we're ready to go forward. I'm excited for the direction we're going. I think we've got some things in place right now that mayor Shine and the council have put together, and we're just going to continue to work with some of that. I think we've got a bright future, and I think we're going to get some things moving in the right direction."
Said Mayor, David Davis.

Two other elected officials were sworn in tonight as well.

Returning council member Robert Culver and new council member Jason Peterson.

And directly following the swearing in ceremony, Councilmen Robert Culver was unanimously elected as president of the council.
