Christian County’s newest board member was sworn into office at Tuesday night’s county board meeting. Venise McWard is filling the seat vacated by Ashley Linton, and she will serve Christian County’s first district.
McWard, a Stonington native, says the support she has received from her friends and family has been overwhelming.
McWard will be up for re-election next spring, so she looks forward to meeting her constituents during the next several months.
Other actions items at Tuesday’s meeting included motions to approve the purchase of a Jumping Jack Compactor for the highway department, and two culvert projects were approved. The board also approved the contract with AFSCME for the county’s probation officers, giving the officers an equity adjustment in their pay making it more in line with the other probation officers in the Fourth Judicial Circuit.
