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.
Viars was sworn in during the council’s regular meeting Monday, the city said in a news release. Her term ends in 2019.
She is a mother of three and has been an active member of the Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority.
“I want people to have a reason for visiting our great city that includes tourists and residents,” Viars said.
