Former Town Council Vice President Eric Steinhilber is now the Council President and Council James Crocker, Jr. is the Vice-President.
“We certainly all love this town and want it to be the best it can possibly be and what I would like to continue to bring in the leadership is a unity of purpose, that’s why we’re here, for the Town of Barnstable and everyone that lives in it,” said Steinhilber.
Outgoing President Jessica Rapp-Grassetti was thanked by council members for her leadership and supported Steinhilber for president of the council.
“The president needs a good vice-president, I’ve leaned on him throughout my tenure here and I think he knows the job and I think he would bring honor to it,” said Rapp-Grassetti.
Councilor Jennifer Cullum lost to Steinhilber in the town council vote for president.
She said that she was asked a couple of times to remove her name from consideration for the position.
“I believe I have the right to run and I think that really undermines the whole democratic process, by removing choice,” said Cullum.
