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 had been District 5 representative on the council.

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.
