Re-elected council members sworn in to office

By Roxanne Thompson, Staff Writer

Groesbeck city council incumbents Warren Anglin and Kim Harris were sworn in to office for their new term at last week’s city council meeting.

Council took that action at its May 16 meeting and also took care of other minor matters; and announced a new directive by Union Pacific Railroad on enforcing a prohibition against hanging signs from their overpasses.

Mayor Ray O’Docharty led the two newly re-elected council members in the oaths of office near the close of the meeting. Earlier in the meeting, the council had canvassed the votes and declared the winners for the two seats up for a vote.

Anglin received a total of 402 votes; Harris received 284 votes; and Jim Cox received 121.

After Anglin and Harris were sworn in and resumed their seats, the council voted to make Council member Matthew Dawley mayor pro tem and Harris deputy mayor pro tem.
