Two join New Port Richey that bids farewell to outgoing members

NEW PORT RICHEY — Two new City Council members were sworn in last week, taking over for outgoing Deputy Mayor Rob Marlowe and council member Bob Langford.

Chopper Davis, 65, and Jeffrey Starkey, 38, took the oath office at City Hall on April 16 and took part in their first meeting. Marlowe decided not to seek another term, while Langford came in fourth in a seven-candidate election April 9.

"I'm humbled and honored to be up here with you all," Starkey told his colleagues.

Davis thanked the voters for putting him in office and said he is ready to get going.

"I think we've got a lot of work to do and I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work," he said.

Marlowe and Langford received plaques honoring their service, with both thanking the public for allowing them to serve. Both men also thanked the staff and their colleagues for assisting in their work.

"You guys are great," Marlowe said.
