Vice Mayor Betty Walker said Pomeroy had been mayor longer than any other. “He was different, but he was special,” she recalled. “He was going to get the last word in. Some of the stuff he came up with was hilarious. He was a good man. He was a good boy.
“He was a good person.” She said he was concerned about people.
Walker said Pomeroy was “all about the betterment of Chiefland.” The city is going real well, she said, and she hopes the commission will keep it going in his honor.
