A familiar face on the Goldsboro City Council will be the city’s new mayor.
Monday evening, the council voted 4-1 to appoint David Ham the next Mayor of Goldsboro.
Ham is currently the District 5 representative on the Goldsboro City Council.
To avoid a potential conflict of interest, Ham was not allowed to vote for himself during Monday’s proceedings.
At the end of Monday’s meeting, Ham said he took this step because he felt like he could do something to benefit his hometown.
Ham asked for support from his fellow council members and Goldsboro residents, and he asked for prayers as the city moves forward.
Ham will serve out the remaining term of former Mayor Chuck Allen, who resigned in June due to health concerns.
That term ends in November of 2023.
