Long, elected eight years ago, and Polk, elected in 2010, chose not to run for reelection. Tuesday marked their last city council meeting. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
Many well-wishers attended Camden City Council’s meeting Tuesday night -- the last for outgoing councilmen Walter Long and Willard Polk. Both men chose not to run for reelection earlier this year. Council members-elect Deborah Davis and Jeffrey Graham are scheduled to be sworn in Tuesday; they will attend their first meeting Dec. 9.
