DAVIDSON — Town commissioners publicly applauded the appointment of Dan Clodfelter for Charlotte mayor.

Davidson Mayor John Woods said Clodfelter is a 1972 graduate of Davidson College and that he has a great relationship with Clodfelter, as does the town.

Clodfelter was sworn in April 9, replacing Patrick Cannon who resigned March 26 following federal corruption charges.

The board all signed a congratulatory letter to be sent to him.
