Rome City Commissioner Jamie Doss was chosen Monday night as the city’s new mayor.

Doss became the mayor in a 7-to-2 vote. Wendy Davis and Bill Collins supported Collins.

Doss has served on the commission since 1994, and is an Ameriprise financial advisor. He’s a graduate of Darlington High School and Berry College.

A member of First Presbyterian Church, Doss is married to Tracy. They have three daughters.

The outgoing mayor is Evie McNiece.

Commissioners also voted 7-to-2 on the same lines to choose Milton Slack III over Collins as president pro tempore. Slack will act as mayor when Doss is unavailable.
