City of Slaton Commissioner Ward IV Charlie Haynes Jr. was sworn in for a full term after council approved the certificate of unopposed candidate Monday evening (May 11) during its monthly meeting.
Haynes, who was elected to fill the unexpired term of James A. “Buster” Tucker last year, ran unopposed after a second candidate who filed dropped out of the election.
Secretary Pam King swore in Haynes for a full term.
Council also approved letting the Declaration of Disaster to start expiring.
