City of Pooler inauguration ceremony held at Mighty Eighty Air Force Museum


Monday's inauguration for the City of Pooler was held at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.

Savannah native and Pooler Mayor, Mike Lamb ran unopposed in the race and City Council is made up of 6 people - ranging from re-elected members to newly elected.

WTOC caught up with Mayor Lamb, who is dedicating this term to a very important person.

"Four years ago, my wife was here and unfortunately, a little over a year ago, the disease she had been battling for 10 and a half years took her life and when she passed away, it sort of took a lot out of me, but it's given me a focus now for this four year term and I want to dedicate this term to my wife Diane,” said Mayor Lamb.

WTOC also caught up with new councilman and current Metro Police Captain, Ashley Brown who hopes to use the knowledge he's gained while serving 22 years on the force, to his new term.

"With any growing community, just like Pooler is...with a growing population, growing amenities. There's going to be growing problems. Having so much experience in law enforcement, I want to stay ahead of that and make sure the citizens of Pooler stay safe,” said Brown.
