A man who has served as alderman in St. Elmo for about seven years has been appointed mayor in that community.
In a 4-1 vote during a recessed meeting on Thursday evening, the St. Elmo City Council appointed Jayson Porter to the mayoral seat.
Porter's election as mayor came three days after Randy Watson submitted his resignation. After Watson resigned, Porter was picked by the council to conduct the remainder of Monday's regular council meeting. The council recessed the meeting until Thursday night.
