City Council Appoints Vernon Compton to Vacant Seat

On November 9, 2021, the City Council met to appoint a replacement to fill the unexpired term of Mr. David Richardson. Mr. Richardson resigned on October 4, 2021, due to health issues. Under the requirements of the City Charter, the Council had 60 days to complete the appointment process.

On Tuesday, November 2, 2021, at the Executive Committee meeting, Council heard from each of the three candidates vying for the seat. The candidates were Mr. Compton, Mr. Michael Cullinane, and Mr. Michael Cusack.

Each Councilmember was allowed to rank the candidates. Following that exercise, the top candidate was Mr. Compton. By a unanimous vote of 5-0 (Councilmembers Rice & Snow absent), Council appointed Vernon Compton to fill the Ward 1, Seat 1 position until the 2022 election. He was immediately sworn in at the City Council Meeting and participated in the remainder of the meeting.

“I am honored to be selected to serve the citizens of Milton and Ward 1. I welcome input from everyone as we work together on the issues of the City”, said Mr. Compton following his appointment. Mr. Compton works for The Longleaf Alliance, an environmental organization.
