On October 27, 2020, the City Council met in a special called meeting to appoint a replacement to fill the unexpired term of Mrs. Heather Hathaway.  Mrs. Hathaway resigned on September 8, 2020 due to no longer residing in the City of Milton.  Under the requirements of the City Charter, the Council had 60 days to complete the appointment process.

Each Councilmember was allowed to rank their top two choices.  Following that exercise, the top two candidates were David T. Richardson and Michael Cusack.  By a vote of 6 to 1, Council appointed David T. Richardson, Jr. to fill the Ward 1, Seat 1 until the 2022 election.  


“As I represent Ward 1, I hope to do what is best for the City as a whole.  My special interest group is the citizens of the City of Milton”, said Mr. Richardson following his appointment.


Mr. Richardson works for the Santa Rosa County Schools and is a former pastor.  He will be sworn in at the City Council Meeting on Monday, November 10, 2020 at 5:30 p.m.
