Newly elected Gainesville City Councilman Sam Couvillon will be sworn in after today’s meeting alongside Danny Dunagan, the city’s first directly elected mayor. Couvillon, 43, will represent Ward 1 in northwest Gainesville, and said he hopes to bring an open mind and fresh set of eyes to the board. “I looked at the makeup of the board and felt like we needed some new blood,” he said.
