Gulfport Council Presentations

“It’s been truly an honor to have served as an elected official. I’m very proud of this elected council... If you serve this community well, they’ll treat you well,” Former Mayor Mike Yakes said upon receipt of a city flag and a key to the city.

Mayor Sam Henderson, on behalf of the Gulfport city council, presented former mayor, Mike Yakes, with a key to the city and a flag. He also presented The Boca Ciega High School principal, Michael Vigue, with the Spirit of Gulfport award.

Former Mayor Yakes noted later that the city included the gavel he had used since he took office in 1991. He also expressed his gratitude for City Clerk Lesley DeMuth and the thought she put into the arrangement of the flag presentation.
