TARBORO — A first-term councilman has been tapped as the town’s new leader.
Councilman Leo Taylor has been selected by the town council to serve as mayor pro tem.
The council’s former Mayor Pro Tem Taro Knight stepped down at the same meeting, citing his battle with cancer.
Mayor Rick Page resigned earlier this year. With no mayor, the mayor pro tem will conduct town meetings and represent the town with outside entities. (Rocky Mount Telegram)
