Tamarac, Florida – The members who serve on the Tamarac City Commission have chosen Morey Wright, a commissioner from District 2, to be the new Vice Mayor of the city of Tamarac. Commissioners made their decision at their monthly meeting on December 13th.
Even though Morey Wright has only been with the commission since November of last year, he will now have more duties as he takes on this leadership job for a year. Wright shall serve as acting mayor if the current mayor is not present or available.

“I’m honored to be appointed as Tamarac’s Vice Mayor,” said Morey. “I am excited to continue to work with the Commission, residents and community members to develop meaningful programs and initiatives that will positively impact Tamarac and ensure that our City remains a vibrant and thriving community for all.”
