ST. CLOUD -- The St. Cloud city council has voted in a new council president at Monday's meeting.

Council members Carol Lewis and Jeff Goerger were nominated for the position and Lewis won by a 3-2 vote.

Lewis says she wants to get the council involved with all the neighborhoods to learn how to better serve St. Cloud.

"I'd like to work with the mayor in making sure we get our neighborhoods involved in the process even more than they have been."

Lewis is the only woman on the St. Cloud City Council she says she feels honored by her male peers to be selected as a leader within the council.

"It's a very nice compliment by the members of the council, I'm the only female so it's nice to be supported by the men on the council."

Lewis just began her second term as a St. Cloud city council member.
