Lee Weislogel named interim mayor of Sherwood
Lee Weislogel, a long-time former member of the Sherwood City Council, was unanimously appointed as interim mayor of Sherwood on Tuesday night.
In addition to serving as a council member in the past, Weislogel has previously served on the Sherwood Planning Commission and SURPAC (the city' urban renewal agency).
In addition, he was president of Sherwood Main Street for six years and currently serves as chairman its advisory board.
Weislogel has said he will not seek the full-time mayor's seat, which became vacant by the resignation of Krisanna Clark-Endicott in October. Previously, Councilor Sean Garland also had thrown his hat into the ring for the spot but withdrew the week of Oct. 30, saying he will instead run for the permanent mayor's seat during the March 13 election.
That left Weislogel as the lone applicant for the position. The deadline to apply to run for the mayor's seat is Jan. 5.
"It's humbling to be here and I thank you for your support and understanding," Weislogel said after being sworn in during the meeting.
Meanwhile, Garland was appointed council president on Oct. 31 in a 4-0 vote.
In addition to being a member of Friends of the Sherwood enter for the Arts, he belongs to the Robin Hood Festival Association and the Sherwood Historical Society along with numerous other city groups and organizations.
