ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) The Ellsworth City Council held its organizational meeting today.
Dale Hamilton is new to the council and was sworn into office at the meeting.
Marc Blanchette was also named Chairperson.
Both men said they are looking forward to helping their community.
“I'm not looking to be Bangor, Lewiston, Portland,” said Blanchette. “I'm looking to be Ellsworth and have other towns and cities emulate us.”
“I'm very interested in making sure that I listen to their voice,” said Hamilton. “So at any point if people have suggestions or comments, I would certainly appreciate that feedback so that I can make sure that their voice is heard on the council.”
