[ARCHIVED] Homestead Mayor Stephen R. Shelley Sworn In

Mayor Shelley Sworn In

On January 14, 2019, Stephen R. Shelly took the oath of office to become Homestead’s new Mayor during an intimate morning ceremony surrounded by his family.  His mother, Wanda Shelley, and father, Rickey Shelley, jointly administered the oath of office while his son, Jackson Shelley, stood by his side.


“I’m honored to take on this new leadership role for the citizens of Homestead,” said Mayor Shelley.  “I look forward to continuing the incredible progress that we as elected officials, staff, and citizens have made towards a brighter future in Homestead.”


Shelley, formerly Vice Mayor, assumed the seat of Mayor after former Mayor Jeff Porter resigned in accordance with Florida’s “resign-to-run” law.  Mayor Shelley will hold the seat of Mayor until the city’s elections in November 2019.  He was elected in 2017 to a two year term as Vice Mayor and a four year term as Councilman to represent Council Seat #1, which includes the city's northwest district.  He was first elected to the Homestead City Council in 2009 and re-elected to a term as Vice Mayor and Councilman in 2013.  


The vacancy in Council Seat #1 will be filled by a qualified person voted on by the entire City Council.  That person will serve as Councilmember until the city’s elections in November 2019.  For more information on all of Homestead’s elected officials, please visit www.cityofhomestead.com/elected.
