ATWATER -- Councilman Craig Mooneyham picked up some extra responsibilities when he was named mayor pro tem during a meeting this week.

Mooneyham, who's been on the council since 2010, was unanimously voted into the position. Whoever serves as mayor pro tem performs the tasks of the mayor when she's absent.

Mooneyham said he's going to work hard in his additional role.

"I'm truly honored to have the confidence of the mayor and the City Council to serve in that capacity," he said.

Councilman Joe Rivero served as mayor pro tem before Mooneyham was voted in during Monday night's meeting.
