Palm Coast – Newly elected City of Palm Coast Mayor David Alfin was sworn in on Tuesday, August 3, at the Palm Coast Council Business meeting at City Hall. Mayor Alfin was elected through a special election on July 27 to complete former-Mayor Milissa Holland’s term after she resigned on May 18. The current term runs through 2024.

Also Tuesday, Council Member Eddie Branquinho, who has served as interim Mayor following Holland’s departure was reappointed Vice Mayor. The City Council selects a new Vice Mayor each November.

David Alfin is the fourth elected Mayor in Palm Coast’s history.

He lives on the north end of the city with his wife Tammy and seven horses, three dogs, and a cat. He has five children, one of whom attended Matanzas High School and was crowned Miss Matanzas.

Mayor Alfin has a comprehensive career in a variety of arenas: he owned and operated a Boar’s Head distributorship, a perfume & cosmetic company, a Flagler Beach restaurant, and he became a top producing realtor. Along the way he has served many organizations including the City of Palm Coast Citizens Advisory Task Force, the Flagler Value Assessment Board, and the Flagler Education Foundation.
