BELOIT - The Beloit City Council has a new president and vice president, after holding a reorganization meeting Tuesday night.

Councilors voted unanimously to elect Regina Dunkin as council president, while voting 4-3 in favor of naming Clinton Anderson as vice president. Dunkin was nominated by councilor Nancy Forbeck.

Anderson was nominated by councilor Mark Preuschl.

Councilor Beth Jacobsen received three votes for vice president, after being nominated by outgoing president Kevin Leavy.

Councilors will now consider top choices for advisory committee appointments, with Dunkin asking councilors to turn in all applications by April 25.
