On Thursday night, Gloucester’s City Council appointed City Councilor Sefatia Romeo Theken as the city’s new interim mayor, and I would like to congratulate her on her elevation. There is no one in the city who embodies what it means to be from Gloucester more than Sefatia. She will bring a high level of energy, enthusiasm, and expertise to the position.
Most of all, Sefatia will bring her passion and love of the city to the corner office, as she did as a city councilor and as a liaison at Addison Gilbert Hospital. I’m confident that Sefatia will guide Gloucester on a course of success.
