New Stevens Point mayor chosen

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - Stevens Point has chosen a new mayor.

The Stevens Point Council unanimously appointed Gary Wescott to take over starting December 1st.

This comes after current Stevens Point Mayor Andrew Halverson announced plans to step down at the end of the month.

Council members say Wescott was the mayor of the community for 12 years before deciding not to run for re-election in 2007.

They say his knowledge will make for a smooth transition into the interim.

Wescott will hold the position until the April elections.

Council members say Wescott does not plan to run for mayor at this time.
