Continuity reigned as Boca Raton City Council members decided on their leaders at an April 8 organizational meeting.
They unanimously voted that Jeremy Rodgers should continue in his role as deputy mayor. Andrea O’Rourke nominated him, and Andy Thomson seconded her motion at the five-minute meeting.
But that vote happened after Monica Mayotte nominated her political ally O’Rourke. The effort failed when no one seconded her motion.
Rodgers nominated O’Rourke and Mayotte to continue serving as chair and vice chair, respectively, of the Community Redevelopment Agency. Thomson seconded the motion, and the vote in favor was unanimous.
Mayor Scott Singer was elected by voters in August. He was elevated to the position after Susan Haynie was arrested in April 2018 on public corruption charges and suspended from office by then-Gov. Rick Scott.
