Nov. 21. Town Commissioner Dave Gilroy, who currently serves as Mayor Pro Tem, ran the Town Board’s Nov. 20 meeting in the absence of Mayor Woody Washam. He opted not to run for re-election this fall.

He had some personal thoughts which he shared with the audience and the community:

“I’ve spent most of the last 22 years up here on this board, and I just want to say thank you to everyone. It’s been the pleasure of a lifetime to serve my fellow citizens. Cornelius is the town I love and I have worked hard to safeguard our quality of life. My thanks also to our great team of managers and professionals who work for the town to serve our citizens. It’s been a real pleasure to work with you.”

Gilroy left the door slightly ajar for a possible future run for office. “You never say never in this business, but for now, thank you to all.”

Gilroy served as mayor pro tem during the past two years, meaning he logged the highest number of votes for commissioner in the 2021 local elections. Before that, he was Town Commissioner from 2005 to 2019.

  2. Dave: It’s only fitting that in the week of Thanksgiving that the town thanks you for the steady hand of leadership. You have given of your time and talents and I hope that you find fulfillment in all of your future endeavors. Chris Cooke
