BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Palm Beach County has a new Mayor and Vice Mayor. The titles are more administrative and ceremonial than anything else, but as we learned during COVID, the Mayor becomes the public face of Palm Beach County government if there is a crisis.

Palm Beach County released this update late Wednesday afternoon regarding the just-completed Palm Beach County Commission meeting:

The current board finished old business and said farewell to Mayor Robert Weinroth and Commissioner Melissa McKinlay. A board room at the new Palm Tran headquarters was named for Mayor Weinroth because of his dedication to transportation issues in the county. A facility for transitional housing, Lake Village at the Glades, was named Melissa’s Place in honor of Commissioner McKinlay’s work on housing in The Glades.

Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller Joseph Abruzzo swore in two new commissioners and one re-elected commissioner to the board. Commissioner Marci Woodward, District 4 and Sara Baxter, District 6 joined Commissioner Gregg Weiss on the board. 

Commissioner Gregg Weiss was elected Mayor for a one-year term and Commissioner Maria Sachs was elected as Vice Mayor.
