Hillsborough Elects Weaver as Mayor, Three Incumbent Commissioners
Hillsborough citizens elected Commissioner Jenn Weaver as mayor and reelected three town commissioners Tuesday, Nov. 5.
Weaver, who ran unopposed, will succeed Mayor Tom Stevens, who decided not to run for an eighth two-year term.
“It is a tremendous honor to be moving into this new role as mayor of Hillsborough,” Weaver said. “It is the people of Hillsborough, in roles large and small, who make our town the wonderful place it is. And I’m excited to work with the board, staff and community to continue that work.”
Commissioners Mark Bell, Matt Hughes and Evelyn Lloyd were reelected to a four-year term. This will be Bell’s second term and Lloyd’s seventh. It will be the first full term for Hughes, who was appointed by the board to serve as a commissioner in 2018 after former Commissioner Brian Lowen resigned.
Oaths of office will be administered Dec. 9 during a regular meeting of the Board of Commissioners.
The Hillsborough Board of Commissioners is seeking a qualified Hillsborough resident to serve the two years remaining in Weaver’s term. Candidates can apply online until noon this Friday, Nov. 8.
The application is available on the Commissioner Search page of the town’s website. More information about the time commitment and duties of the position, a timeline for the appointment process, and submitted applications are also available there.
To determine residency within Hillsborough town limits, see the Jurisdiction and Service Areas page. Some homes have Hillsborough mailing addresses despite being outside the town’s boundaries.
