Gainesville Mayor Looks Back, As City Prepares For Changes
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan has experienced a lot in office.
From the joys of seeing UF win National Championships, to the heartache of losing police officers in the line of duty.
It's been a career of highs and lows.
The mayor is leaving office in May due to term limits, but is leaving with mostly fond memories.
Mayor Hanrahan has a lot to be proud of, including keeping the city afloat in the middle of a recession.
She's especially proud of her work to get a solar feed tariff in place and cleaning up Gainesville's Depot Park.
But she didn't get a chance to accomplished everything she wanted while in office.
Mayor Hanrahan had hoped to see the plan for the clean up of the Cabbot Kopper site finalized.
Mayor Hanrahan will pass the gavel to Commissioner Lowe at todays City Commission meeting.
Mayor Elect Craig Lowe will be sworn in on May 20th despite an appeal filed on behalf of his opponent Don Marsh by former commission candidate Mason Alley.
Hanrahan plans to continue her work as an envrionmental engineer when she steps down from office.
