WHITMIRE — The Town of Whitmire’s mayor-elect, Billy Hollingsworth, will be sworn in on Jan. 3 at 4:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
Along with Hollingsworth, the returning council members will also be sworn in. This includes Cassie Fowler, Dwight Lane and Michael Thomas.
Since Hollingsworth was a current council member, a special election will be held the 13th Tuesday after the swear-in date for the remainder of Hollingsworth’s term.
This means that the special election will be held April 2 in Whitmire. Interested candidates must file at Town Hall after the vacancy is posted which has not been posted as of Tuesday morning.
