Kennesaw’s newest council member has been officially sworn in

A Cobb County judge swore in Kennesaw’s newest council member earlier this week.

Tracey Viars, who runs an advertising company in town, beat Kemela Carlson on May 22 by about 400 votes to take Post 2. The position was left vacant by the resignation of Yvette Daniel, who left office in January citing personel reasons.
