Meet the Mayor

Art Woodruff was born and raised in Sanford as a sixth generation Sanfordite. Graduating from Seminole High School in 1980 he attended the University of North Carolina and returned to Sanford where he started teaching in Seminole County Public Schools. After fourteen years at Seminole High School as a science teacher and yearbook adviser, he transferred to Oviedo High School where he currently teaches science and computer science.

First elected as the District 1 Commissioner in 2001, he served through 2010. After one term off, he was again elected in November 2014. In July 2020 he was appointed Mayor following the resignation of Mayor Jeff Triplett. 

“I look forward to building on the many positive improvements that have taken place while serving on the City Commission and continuing to make Sanford a place where we want to live, work, and play.

– Art Woodruff, Mayor
