One Swearing-in Ceremony
A new plan is in place for Anniston City leaders to take their oath of office next week. Officials have decided to hold one swearing-in ceremony at Zinn Park. Originally, Councilman-elect Ben Little and incumbent Councilman David Reddick planned to hold a separate ceremony at the Carver Community Center for themselves. At the same time, a ceremony was planned for Mayor-elect Jack Draper and other council members to take their oaths at the Anniston Municipal Court. Little says there are a number of reasons why they shouldn't take the oath of office at a jailhouse. The swearing-in ceremony will take place on November 7th at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Pavilion at Zinn Park. It will begin at 10 a.m.
