Chauncey Goss was appointed by a 3-1 vote Tuesday, Nov. 3 to fill the Sanibel City Council seat vacated by Jason Maughan, who resigned to run for the Florida House in the Republican primary election. He lost that race and submitted his name to be reappointed.
Vice Mayor Mick Denham and Council Members Holly Smith and Richard Johnson voted in favor of appointing Goss. Mayor Kevin Ruane voiced his support for Maughan.
“Thank you to the council for this opportunity to serve once again,” said Goss, who was elected in 2015 with 95 percent of the votes and served one term until 2019. He also thanked Maughan for his service and the nine other candidates for submitting their names. He encouraged all of them to run in the city’s March election. Goss will serve for the remainder of Maughan’s term and not seek election.
