On the job

The City of Westland celebrated the inauguration of new Mayor Kevin Coleman last week, along with newly elected councilmembers and City Clerk Richard LeBlanc who was unopposed in the election. The officials were sworn into office in city council chambers. Coleman became the first new elected mayor in the city in 16 years following the resignation of William Wild. He was the choice of 8,144 voters or 59.01 percent of the total votes cast. Former interim mayor Mike Londeau garnered 5,630 votes or 40.79 percent of the total ballots cast. Administering the oath of office to Coleman was Michigan Supreme Court Justice Kyra Harris-Bolden.
