The Council voted to select Steve Flock as the Mayor for the coming year. Steve was elected in 2006. He will serve a one year term as the point man for the City Council beginning tonight and ending one year hence.
We would like to congratulate Steve on being selected as he deserves the position for all the hard work he has put in for the People of Twentynine Palms over the years.
This is a position I know Mr. Flock will take seriously. While we have had some small differences he has shown that he has represented his constituency well. Flock is a member of the 29 Arts Guild and and avid photographer. He is a big equestrian fan and avid shooter.
Steve is a retired San Bernardino County Marshal and for many years was the head bailiff at the Joshua Tree Municipal Court. He retired about the time the Court system became a Superior Court and the Sheriffs Department absorbed the Marshal’s Office.
We look forward to talking with Mayor Flock about his future plans for the City. Well done Steve.
On a lighter note, Jim Harris was made Mayor Flock’s assistant as he was selected as Mayor Pro Tem (kind of a honorary stand in for the real Mayor) We were unable to get a comment from Mr. Harris as he refuses to conduct interviews with us.
