Jean Nelson took part in her final Town Council meeting as Thorsby mayor on Monday.

“She’s taken on everything that’s she’s been offered and worked hard every step of the way,” Councilman Glenn Littleton said.

“I appreciate all that she’s down for this town and its people,” Benson said.

Robert Hight will be sworn in as the new mayor during a ceremony at Helen Jenkins Chapel prior to the next Council meeting on Nov. 7.

“I’ve been fortunate to work with several good people,” Nelson said. “It’s been a good four years.”
