In a unanimous vote on Jan. 2, Langley council members selected Ursula Shoudy as the new mayor pro tem.

Shoudy, who has served on the council since 2016, will preside over meetings if Mayor Tim Callison is unavailable. She may also perform other mayoral duties at the mayor’s request.

Councilman Peter Morton nominated Shoudy. The other council members approved of the choice.

“I think she’s a long-standing council member and has broad experience with the council,” Morton said in a phone interview Monday morning. “I think she can do the job effectively.”

Former councilman Thomas Gill was the mayor pro tem for the past two years. Callison said Gill ran only two meetings during that time.

Callison said in an email Monday he was unsure if Shoudy is Langley’s first female mayor pro tem.

(Beth Munns was chosen as Oak Harbor’s mayor pro tem this past week. The councilwoman is the city’s first female mayor pro tem.)
