Lynn Lathrop, right, and Andy Kelley swore each other in as mayor and Ward 2 councilman, respectively, at the start of the Nov. 12 Nevada City Council meeting. The men were elected during the Nov. 5 city elections and took their positions immediately because both positions were previously filled as the result of appointments. Kelley was appointed as mayor earlier this year after former mayor, Jerry Gull, resigned, and Richard Atwell was appointed to fill Kelley’s Ward 2 seat.
