Mayor Ginger Nelson and the current City Council took the dais on Tuesday for another two years.
During Tuesday’s Amarillo City Council meeting, the recently re-elected incumbents were sworn in for a second term after winning re-election on May 4th. The incumbents were sworn in after they approved the canvassing of the votes from the election.
Also, during the meeting, Councilwoman Freda Powell was selected to serve as the mayor pro tempore. This position will allow Powell to discharge the duties of the mayor during City Council meetings for which Nelson is not present.
