Mayor-elect Lori Henry and new members of the Roswell city council will officially take their posts after a swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 8.
The event begins at 6 p.m. that Monday evening inside the council chambers at Roswell’s City Hall. A reception will follow in the rotunda. The swearing-in is open to the public and free to attend.
Henry is the first woman to be elected mayor of the city in north Fulton County, and will take over a post that Jere Wood has held for two decades. In a runoff election, she edged out Lee Jenkins by 1,161 votes.
Joining Henry in the swearing-in will be newly elected councilmembers Matt Judy, Sean Groer, Matthew Tyser and Marie Willsey.
Two other councilmen, Mike Palermo and Marcelo Zapata, were not up for re-election and will carry over from the Wood era.
A city council meeting is set for this date as well, but an agenda for it has not yet been posted to the city’s website.
