New mayor Lori Henry, Roswell council to be sworn in on Jan. 8

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.
