Clarksburg City Council swore in a new mayor and vice mayor Monday evening in a special meeting.
City council members appointed Cathy Goings as Mayor and Gary Bowden as Vice Mayor. Goings said she's excited to take on the role as mayor and to make a difference throughout the community of Clarksburg.
She also said there's a lot on council's plate right now but looks forward to working with the new city council.
"We have such a great council and any one of us could have been mayor, but they chose me to represent the city and I'm very honored and privileged to do that," said Goings.
Goings said council is working on several projects and that she wants to keep those projects moving forward in Clarksburg to make Clarksburg a better place for everyone.
