At the Special City Council Meeting on April 10, 2017, one of the Council’s
first actions was to formally recognize the public service of outgoing
Councilman John Carver. Councilman Carver served on the Council from
October 2013 through April 2017.
The oath of office was then administered to newly elected Councilwoman Elizabeth
(Liz) Cupp by the City Clerk.
Councilwoman Cupp began her career in municipal government in 1964 as the
Secretary to the City Manager. Since then, she has worked as the City
Clerk, Interim City Manager, and ultimately the City Manager with a total of 26
years of experience in municipal government. She holds a Master Municipal
Clerk designation from the International Institute of City Clerks and 750
continuing education credits with the Missouri City Clerks and Finance Officers
Association. Councilwoman Cupp was also a member of the Missouri City
Manager's Association and served for 10 years on the Missouri Worker's
Compensation Trust Board in Jefferson City. She retired from municipal
government in 2011.
the Oath of office
was the Council's duty of electing a new Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem to serve in
those positions for 2017-2018. Councilman Jeri Holt was elected by the
Council to serve as the Mayor and Councilman Tyson Brammer was elected to serve
as the Mayor Pro-Tem for the City Marceline.
