Alamogordo Mayor Elect Susan Payne Sworn in as Mayor

Last night at the first regular commission meeting of the year, newly elected Mayor Susan Payne was sworn in along with District 2 Commissioner Stephen Burnett, and re-elected District 4 Commissioner Josh Rardin. “I’m excited to start my term as Mayor and continue to build on the foundation that Mayor Boss established. I’m ready to work with our new commission, hear their ideas, and implement strategies that will positively impact and improve our community for years to come,” said Mayor Payne.

Newly elected Municipal Judge, David Overstreet oversaw the swearing-in and shared, “It has been exciting to begin serving as Alamogordo’s Municipal Judge, and I am grateful for the hard work of Judge Lee and the court staff in helping me make the transition. It was my pleasure to swear in the newly elected officials as they assume the responsibility of helping lead our city.”

With Payne’s transition to Mayor from District 3 Commissioner, there is now a vacancy.

City Clerk, Rachel Hughs, posted the Public Notice today with the qualifications and schedule for the appointment.

Disappointed to see the lack of mask wearing.  I guess we should assume that everyone in the photos not wearing masks recently tested negative?
