Rockland — City councilors and citizens praised Mayor Will Clayton Monday night, Nov. 13, at his final meeting.

Clayton did not seek reelection and his term expires this week. He has served two non-consecutive three-year terms on the City Council, being elected in 2010 and 2014.

Councilor Adam Ackor presented Clayton with plaques thanking him for his years on the council and for his past year as mayor. Ackor praised Clayton for being a good partner in working on various issues.

Councilor Valli Geiger said Clayton's commitment to public service was impressive and that he has been able to balance work, children and public service.

Clayton thanked councilors for their kind words and pointed out that his daughter, a sixth-grader, is continuing the tradition by taking out papers to run for the student council. He said he first got on the student council when he was in sixth grade.
