Mr. Ernie Anderson of Creedmoor was sworn into office as County Commissioner at 3 p.m. today. Anderson was appointed by the Granville County Board of Commissioners to represent District 5, a seat left vacant by the unexpected passing of Comm. Owen Roberts in July.
Anderson, a construction project manager, was sworn in by Creedmoor Mayor Bobby Wheeler, with Commissioners Zelodis Jay (District 1), Sue Hinman (District 3) and Tim Karan (District 6) in attendance. Anderson’s wife Linda held the Bible for the oath of office.
The appointment was made at the Sept. 8 meeting of the Board. Anderson will serve until Dec. 7, as this seat is on upcoming ballot.
