Amelia council members take office

At the first village council meeting of 2006, Amelia mayor Mark Menz swore in three current members and a new council member. Andrew Barker, Pam Troxell, and Michele Girard have all previously been on council. Eric Kelso is the newest addition to the council board.

Kelso, who has lived in Amelia for two and a half years, said that he first became interested in politics after working as a volunteer for the past presidential election.
