Three Madison City Council members, Carrie Peters Reid, Rick Blanton, and Joe DiLetto, were sworn in for another 4-year-term on Monday, Jan. 4. Mayor Fred Perriman and City Manager David Nunn stood by to congratulate the councilman. “Glad to have you with us,” said Perriman. “We thank you for your service,” said Nunn. The returning council members are looking forward to making a difference in the City of Madison over the course of the next four years. DiLetto particularly wants to make the next four years count, as he anticipates it will be his last term. “I’m getting older, and my wife will be retired then. This term will be my last so we can do more things together then,” said DiLetto. DiLetto noted that his previous four years of experience as city councilman and the political landscape of the four years ahead, compelled him to stay on another four years. “I felt it was necessary at this time for me to do this again,” said DiLetto. “I am excited ready to serve District 1 and the entire City of Madison,” said Reid, who thanked all of those who supported her campaign for reelection. “It’s about giving life to the City of Madison.” “I am just excited that I get to continue doing the work that keeps this city moving. We will keep on going,” said Blanton.
