He says his biggest concern is tackling Gainesville's affordability issue. Former City Commisssioner Ed Braddy was sworn in as the new Mayor of Gainesville at the Thelma Boltin Center today.
City Commissioner Randy Wells was also sworn in to serve three more years representing District Four-- and was elected Mayor Pro Tem.
Mayor Braddy says his biggest concern is addressing the Biomass Power Plant contract. He says the city needs to review the contract and what he says is the high cost it will have on customers.
"We have some serious financial questions we have to grapple with, concerning the Biomass contract: the extension of bonds that have been used to finance that, the impact on rates for electricity," Ed Braddy (Mayor) said.
Mayor Braddy says solving Gainesville's problems will require open dialogue between commissioners and the community.
