City Council Members

The Shelton City Council consists of seven individuals who are responsible for policymaking for the City. Each councilmember is elected to serve a four-year term. Councilmembers are elected citywide.

Every two years, councilmembers will appoint one member of the Council to serve as Mayor. The Mayor serves as the presiding officer at Council meetings and is the ceremonial leader of Shelton. The Mayor has no executive or administrative authority. Once a Mayor has been selected, the Council may then appoint a Deputy Mayor.
