Jenny Selin Named Mayor at Morgantown City Council Meeting

MORGANTOWN -

Morgantown City Council had a full agenda on Tuesday, but the first thing addressed was the need to fill the mayor's chair.

Council voted 5 to 2 to make Jenny Selin from the fourth ward the new mayor of Morgantown.

Selin said what qualities council looks for in a potential mayor.

"Usually, time on council is a factor, although I know at least one woman who came on and her first night on council she was elected mayor. We look for experience, ability to work well with others, and some good old fashioned common sense," Selin said.

The majority of council found Selin to have those qualities, along with Marti Shamberger who was elected deputy mayor.

All of the council members were also sworn into office on Tuesday evening.
