Carrollton Appoints New Pro Tem Positions
The Carrollton City Council appointed members John Sutter and Young Sung as Mayor Pro Tem and Deputy Mayor Pro Tem, respectively, during the June 5 meeting.
Sutter was recently re-elected to Place 7 in May; his term will expire in 2021.
“I take the honor of serving as Carrollton City Council Mayor Pro Tem very seriously and accept the position with great humility,” Sutter said. “I look forward to further enhancing this community by working with our new City Council to bring in new businesses, redevelop aging neighborhoods, strengthen our public safety, improve our streets, alleys, and parks, and continue the close relationship with our school districts. Carrollton is a great place to live, work, and play because of its dedicated staff and involved citizens.”
Sung was elected to Place 6 in 2017 and will complete his term in 2020.
“I am humbled by the support shown by my fellow City Council members in their nomination and my selection as Deputy Mayor Pro Tem,” Sung said. “I hope to serve in this position as an advocate for the Council's shared priorities: public safety, economic development, positive redevelopment, strong infrastructure, and fiscal responsibility.”
Sung went on to say Carrollton is a place with social and economic diversity, beautiful and varied amenities, the highest quality first responders, supportive staff, and wonderful residents.
“I pledge to work in support, and enhancement of, each of these special Carrollton qualities,” Sung said. “It is an honor to serve citizens in this new capacity.”
