Council To Pick Mayor on Monday


The Mayor is not an elected position on Fort Myers Beach. The charter requires council to choose its own Mayor and Vice Mayor every year by a vote. They could decide to keep Ray Murphy on as Mayor for a year, or vote in another council member. It has not yet been a year for Murphy because the election was changed from March to November to coincide with state and federal elections.


  1. I’ve been very impressed by Jim Atterholt during his time on council. He seems to remember he has two ears and one mouth and spends more time listening and asking questions then proclaiming. He seems to have a servant attitude about his position. Would love to see him step in as mayor.
