Fenwick Island swears in new town council members

With one hand on the Bible, three Fenwick Islanders swore to this week serve as town council members in accordance with the Town Code, state and U.S. constitutions.

Vicky Carmean, Bernie Merritt Jr. and Gardner Bunting officially began their two-year terms at a Aug. 16 reorganization meeting.

During the election of town officers, Gene Langan and Merritt won the positions of president and secretary, respectively, on a 4-3 vote. (Carmean was supported for either position by Julie Lee and Roy Williams.)

Unanimous votes were secured for council Vice President Richard Mais and Treasurer Gardner Bunting.
