Gifford is new Three Forks Mayor


The City of Three Forks has a new Mayor.

The governing body voted 4-2 Tuesday night to appoint Sean Gifford to fill the position vacated by Steven Hamilton earlier this month. His term will expire at the end of 2019 and he has filed to run for the position in the election scheduled for later this year.

The first vote by the Council ended in a tie with Gifford and current council member and longtime former Mayor Gene Townsend both receiving three votes. Carl “Bud” Mohler Jr. had also submitted a letter of interest in filling the vacancy.

During an introductory speech to the governing body prior to the vote, Gifford said he is married with four children and has lived and worked in Three Forks for nearly a decade. Gifford has served in the United States Army and National Guard and is the owner of V-42 Fitness in Three Forks. He has also served as a Three Forks Police Officer and Three Forks Fire Fighter as well as currently volunteering on the Mason Moore Foundation and Three Forks Ambulance Board. He also volunteers with his daughters weekly at the Headwaters Historical Museum.

Gifford said he is a civil servant and his service never stops.

“I intend to provide it to the City of Three Forks,” he said.

Townsend and Mohler Jr. have also filed to run for Mayor in the general election later this year.
