On a night that included discussion of a 24-classroom addition at Riverglades Elementary school, modular classrooms for Heron Heights and Park Trails Elementary schools, a resolution embracing the Broward Reads literacy partnership, and selection of a Vice Mayor and Deputy Vice Mayor, the newly elected Parkland Mayor and Commissioners took their oaths of office in the Commission Chambers at Parkland City Hall Wednesday night.

Judge Ari Porth administered the oath of office to the City’s new Mayor, and former Commissioner, Christine Hunschofsy and new Commissioners Bob Mayersohn and Grace Solomon.  Judge Louis Schiff administered the oath of office to new Commissioner Ken Cutler.  Commissioner Stacy Kagan was selected by the Commission as Vice Mayor and Commissioner Ken Cutler will serve as Deputy Vice Mayor.

With the ceremonial formalities completed, the new Commission proclaimed November 17, 2016 as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day in Parkland and immediately began tackling Parkland’s big issues.

The new Commission also bid farewell to departing Commissioner of Parkland’s third district, David Rosenof.  Rosenof leaves the Commission after serving two terms and has reached his term limit.
