Editor's note: This story was updated at 6:38 p.m. on July 13 to add the city commission's approval of Dutton-Mitchell's nomination.
Kathryn Dutton-Mitchell, who was tapped by Mayor Bill May to fill Walt Baldwin's former seat on the Frankfort Plant Board, was unanimously approved by the city commission Monday.
“My first responsibility is to be sure that we have qualified people on all our boards,” May told The State Journal in an email. “Kathryn is someone I have known for many years and I believe her education, work experience and calm demeanor will be a great addition to the Frankfort Plant Board.”
Dutton-Mitchell, a South Frankfort resident, is an attorney and member of the Florida Bar.
“I have no doubt that Kathryn will work very well with the current board members,” May said. “She is very calm and deliberative and will fit in well with everyone on the board as well as FPB staff.”
Her term will expire Sept. 23, 2023.
The seat had been open since Baldwin's term expired last fall. May declined to reappoint Baldwin and Anna Marie Pavlik Rosen to second four-year terms on the municipal utility's board. May nominated John Snyder to succeed Rosen in October.
