With a unanimous vote by the Camas City Council, Scott Higgins is now officially the mayor of Camas.
The former Ward 3 councilman and mayor pro-tem was appointed to the position following a structured interview and selection process last night at City Hall. The other candidate was Kim Seaton Thies.
Both applicants were asked a set of five questions that focused on his or her plans for the city if elected, challenges ahead, qualifications and background.
When asked what kind of leadership employees could expect if he was appointed as mayor, Higgins said no one should anticipate a big shake-up in how the city is run.
“I believe the ship is on the right course. It is well run and well administered,” he answered. “I want to add my vision to what is already established.”
