New City Officials Are Set To Take Office

New city officials in Clay County are ready to take office.

Manchester Mayor Elect, Carmen Webb Lewis and new city council members were sworn in Sunday afternoon.

Former councilmen say she's the first woman elected to the office, and many in the crowd say they are excited to have a new mayor for the first time in 28 years.

"It makes you feel good and it kind of motivates you, and I think it's motivated our council members to see you many supporters we have here today," Lewis said.

The new city council will officially take office on January first.
