Goldsboro’s new mayor is officially sworn in. 

Tuesday evening, David Ham recited the Oath of Office and became the new Mayor of Goldsboro.

Ham went through the timeline for the appointment process.

  • The deadline to turn in applications is 5 PM on September 17th.
  • The council will listen to presentations from qualified applicants at its meeting October 4th.
  • The Goldsboro City Council will then decide if there is enough information to vote on the next District 5 council member at the October 18th meeting.

Also at Tuesday’s meeting, District 3 Councilman Taj Polack was named Mayor Pro Tem.
