The Littleton City Council has selected District II Council Member Jerry Valdes to serve as mayor of the 2019-2021 city council. At Large Council Member, Scott Melin was selected as mayor pro tem. The vote took place at the November 19 city council meeting and the terms are for two years. “I appreciate the confidence of the voters and the council,” Valdes said. “I will dedicate as much time as necessary to make sure Littleton is represented and has a seat at the table.”
The selection of the council leadership followed the swearing-in ceremony of the four council members elected by voters at the November 5 municipal election. Valdes won a four-year term in District II and Kelly Milliman won a four-year term in District IV. In the at-large race, Pam Grove was elected to a four-year term and Melin was elected to a two-year term. The swearing-in ceremony was conducted by Littleton Municipal Judge Ethan Feldman.
A reception was held at the meeting to recognize the contributions of departing council members Debbie Brinkman, Peggy Cole and Kyle Schlachter.
