Rockland — In a brief organizational meeting Nov. 19 at city hall, Will Clayton was elected by his fellow city councilors to serve as the Rockland's next mayor.

The councilors voted to have Clayton serve as mayor for the next year, a job that mostly consists of running city council meetings.

In a brief statement, he said he felt honored to serve as the mayor and said he will call for civil and orderly proceedings in city council meetings. He thanked former Mayor Brian Harden for his years of service on the council.

He also called on citizens to contact members of the council with questions and concerns.

"You are the city's eyes and the city's ears," he said.

Clayton, 33, was elected to the city council in November 2010. He attended Rockland schools, graduating from Rockland District High School in 1997. He is executive meetings manager and wedding coordinator for the Samoset Resort.

At the same meeting, Frank Isganitis was sworn in as a new city councilor. Isganitis won the seat in the Nov. 6 election, taking the seat from incumbent Harden.
