Jody Jones will continue serving as the mayor of Paradise for another year.
Tuesday (Dec. 11), the Town Council reappointed Jones (pictured) and Vice Mayor Greg Bolin for additional one-year terms at its regularly scheduled meeting, held in the Chico City Council chambers.
That evening, Councilman Mike Zuccolillo immediately jumped in to nominate himself for mayor, though he was the only member to vote for himself. After also nominating himself as vice mayor and again receiving no votes (Bolin abstained), he offered a stunned “wow.”
Councilwoman Melissa Schuster nominated Jones and Bolin, with Zuccolillo abstaining from both votes.
“Thank you very much for all of your confidence in me,” Jones told attendees.
