At the Sept. 5 Carrabelle city commission meeting, one incumbent returned to her seat and a new commissioner made her debut. After the regular business was complete, incumbent Brenda La Paz, right, and newcomer Olivia Messer Massey, left, were sworn in by City Clerk Keisha Smith.

La Paz, who oversaw Carrabelle’s water and sewer department as she completed the last two years of a four-year term, was elected for a full four-year term on Sept. 3. Massey, granddaughter of Carrabelle Mayor Curley Messer, center, was also elected for a four-year term.
