Councilman Adam McGough elected deputy mayor pro tem

Adam McGough and Adam Medrano at Dallas City Hall

Adam McGough, Lake Highlands’ representative on the Dallas City Council, was elected deputy mayor pro tem at the first meeting of Mayor Eric Johnson and his new council after Monday’s swearing in ceremony. District 2’s Adam Medrano, who represents Fair Park, the Cedars and the Harry Hines industrial area, was voted mayor pro tem.

Council members in Dallas have a tradition of ensuring diversity of leadership, and Medrano, deputy mayor pro tem for Mayor Rawlings, was elected first. A motion to elect Jennifer Staubach Gates then failed, and McGough was elected unanimously.

McGough’s position comes with a new office in city hall and a new seat around the horseshoe closer to the mayor.
