Hamilton County swears in elected officials
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Hamilton County officials were sworn in Tuesday morning.
The inaugural ceremony was at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
Different officials, including the Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger and Sheriff Jim Hammond, took their oaths.
County commission and school board members were sworn in. New school board member, Jenny Hill, says this day meant a lot.
“It is humbling to be at a position where my peers and my neighbors have come together and said, ‘We believe in what you believe in too.’ And so I am excited and energized to get started,” Hill said.
There are three new people on county commission and two new members on the school board.
They will attend their first meetings this month.
