The new Clay City Council had their first meeting on Nov. 5, 2012 after being sworn in. The candles you see are a symbol of working together, said Mayor Charles Webster. The center candle is for the people, and each of the other candles stand for the individual council members.
"My prayer is that each one of these members and myself serve ya'll to the best of our ability," Mayor Webster told a standing-only crowd at the Clay Community Center. "I want to bring the community together."
