New Mayor For Oak Island

Friday, November 20, 2009 - by OIA Staff
Betty Wallace, a retired business woman, was elected to Mayor on November 10th, after a strong victory. Her campaign emphasized improving public access to town information; for example the construction contract for a new town hall was reported at $2.6 million when the actual cost, including debt service, will total much more. Even though the Mayor does not have the power or the ability to set the budget or approve ordinances, she is willing to make recommendations to council and will help to keep the public better informed.
Former Mayor, Johnnie Vereen had held the position since 2005 after Yaupon Beach and Long Beach merged and created Oak Island. Dara Royal and Jim Medlin took the lead to fill the two open council seats, in the close run between seven candidates.
