On Tuesday, Dec. 11, Asheville City Council will swear in the three winners of the November municipal elections: incumbents Jan Davis and Brownie Newman and newcomer Bill Russell.
Russell, a Republican, beat out incumbent Bryan Freeborn and hopefuls Elaine Lite and Dwight Butner in the general election.
The evening’s agenda includes a resolution of appreciation to Freeborn and the election of vice mayor, a seat currently held by Holly Jones.
The special organizational meeting, Council’s last for 2007, will be followed by a reception.
To see the agenda, go here.
