Huntington City Councilman Mark Bates was unanimously re-elected as chairman and City Councilman Scott Caserta was unanimously elected as vice chairman during the council’s regular meeting Monday, Jan. 13.


For Bates, it will be his fourth consecutive year as chairman of Huntington City Council. The District 6 councilman was elected to the governing body in 2008 and was re-elected in 2012.


“I will continue making individual connections with each council member as I have in the past, allowing them to share their concerns and ideas for making Huntington a better place for all of us to live and work,” Bates said. “By working together with Council and Mayor Steve Williams, Huntington is, and will remain, an exceptional city.”


Caserta was first elected to City Council in 2004 and was re-elected in 2008 and 2012. He represents District 7. He previously served as vice chairman in 2007 and chairman in 2008.
“It’s an honor to be able to serve on Council and work with Chairman Bates,” Caserta said.

In addition, Huntington Mayor Steve Williams honored Rick Eplin, who recently retired from the Huntington Police Department. Williams felt touched in issuing the proclamation; he was the city manager when Eplin first became a Huntington police officer.
