Norris to Be Charlottesville Mayor

The news broke today on Coy Barefoot's radio program on WINA-AM: Charlottesville City Councilor Dave Norris will be our new mayor.

Norris himself announced on the air this afternoon that Mayor David Brown will pass the gavel, after two terms, at the next scheduled City Council meeting on January 7.

Brown and two new councilors, Holly Edwards and Satyendra Huja, were sworn in yesterday. They were elected in November. Norris was elected in May 2006 along with Julian Taliaferro.

If you didn't hear Coy's show, you read it here first: Norris has not even posted this news to his own blog yet, although he indicated interest in the job last month.
