Millender named Carrabelle interim mayor

Carrabelle City Commissioner Anthony “Tony” Millender was selected by the city commission May 2 as the city’s interim mayor.

Millender will serve as interim mayor-commissioner until the November election. 

Because he had to resign from his commissioner seat to serve as interim mayor, this left open his commission seat. Commissioners appointed former Carrabelle Mayor Mel Kelly to serve as interim commissioner until the November election. 

The November election will feature four commission seats on the ballot, the mayor-commissioner seat, which is a four-year term, now held by Millender; two four-year commissioner seats, now held by Sebrina Brown and Keith Walden; and one two-year commissioner seat, now held by Mel Kelly on an interim basis.
