Town Seal


Hello Morningside,

I am so humbled to be trusted as the Mayor of this great town. “Gateway to the Nation’s Capital” is our slogan and I am excited about all the positive things we have happening here.  Whether we are having events for the youth, our seniors or the community at large, we always have something going on. 

We are in a great place to continue the momentum with our partnerships on the local, county, state, and federal levels.  I continue to look to you for feedback on ways that you want our town to evolve and grow.  I am working on improved communications with residents.  I encourage you to provide your emails so we can expedite information to you as events and pertinent information  need to be shared. 

I have been Mayor for a little over a year and I can visibly see changes in a positive way.  We have hired 3 Police Officers, 2 Administration, 1 Code Enforcement Officer and 1 Public Works Employee. We have also established a more structured relationship with our Volunteer Fire Department which of course also serves the town and the community at large.  We have a great team between council and employees here to lead and assist residents, businesses and the community in general. 

My goal is to continue on this trajectory of positive events, communications and events for the town.  I thank you in advance for your continued support of me and our council in our respective roles, as we continue to put in the time and energy to keep Morningside as a town you can be proud of.

Sincerely, Your Mayor

Bennard J. Cann
