New mayor in town

Paradise Town Council elects Bolin as mayor

On Tuesday (Dec. 10), the Paradise Town Council unanimously selected Vice Mayor Greg Bolin as the town’s mayor.

Bolin (pictured) was nominated by Jody Jones, whose term as mayor ended that evening. He will serve a one-year term. Councilman Mike Zuccolillo also was nominated for the job, but his nod failed 3-2, with Bolin, Jones and Melissa Schuster voting against. The council, however, selected Zuccolillo to serve as vice mayor.

Bolin is a 46-year Paradise resident and was first elected to the council in 2012, according to his bio on the town’s website. He previously served as a town planning commissioner.

“I’m here to serve this town and this council,” he said. “For me, it’s the service more than anything else.”
