Judge Hatcher Swears In Our Constitutional Officers
By Sid Riley
In a packed court room on Tuesday morning, Judge Woodrow Hatcher officially swore in five of our six constitutional officers for another four year term of office. The incoming Superintendent of Schools, Lee Miller was sworn in by Judge Bill Wright on November 18.
Taking the oath of office at this event were Clerk of Courts, Dale Guthrie; Tax Collector, Sherry Brown; Property Appraiser, Sharon Cox; Supervisor of Elections, Sylvia Stephens; and Sheriff, Louis Roberts. Many of the inductees brought special family bibles for use in the ceremony, and had loving family members with them as they recited their oath. Thus, all of the Constitutional Officer positions are filled, office staffs are ready, and our county government is ready for action.
To all office holders we say CONGRATULATIONS! Good luck, and we appreciate your service.
