McAnelly, Nooner take council oaths

By William Hoover
Anvil Herald Correspondent

Hondo City Council on Monday convened in a special meeting to hold the swearing-in ceremonies for Place 1 Councilman John McAnelly and Place 2 Councilman Sammy Nooner. Both men were unopposed in the 2015 General Election and were declared elected to office for another three-year term.

Mayor Jim Danner asked Justice of the Peace Bubba Howse to administrate the oaths of office to the two councilmen.

Howse administered the oath of office to McAnelly first, followed by Nooner. After repeating their oaths, the audience in attendance gave the councilmen a short round of applause and the men took their seats on the council dais.

“I want to say how pleased we are to have you gentlemen reelected to your posts,” said Danner. “I look forward to working with you. I think we will try to continue the things that we are doing, which I believe have been very beneficial for this city.”

Following the rules of the city charter, council nominated and then appointed Place 4 Councilwoman Ann-Michelle Long to serve as Mayor Pro Tem in the event of Danner’s absence. Long had been the Mayor Pro Tem the prior year when she was reappointed.

“That completes the business we had to deal with prior to our executive session,” said Danner concluding the open meeting.

• Because Monday, May 25, is Memorial Day, the next regular meeting of the Hondo City Council will be Tuesday, May 26, at 6 p.m. in city hall. The meeting is open to the public.
