Flint City Council has selected new leadership in its regular council elections.
In a 6-3 vote, Council Woman Allie Herkenroder (Ward 7) was elected president of the council. Herkenroder was formally vice-president of the council. She replaced Dennis Pfeiffer (Ward 8).
Pheiffer was named chair in September. The seat had been vacant since Councilman Eric Mays (Ward 1) was removed through a vote by his colleagues in April of this year.
The council also elected 2nd Ward Councilwoman Ladel Lewis as council vice president.
There were no committee chairs decided at the meeting. Newly elected Council President Herkenroder asked that those wishing to serve as a chair for any committee to email her expressing their interest.
Flint City Council leadership elections take place yearly in November.
