Quay Boddie was sworn into office as a LaGrange City Council Member Friday (1/27) after being unanimously appointed by council members Tuesday evening at the regular city council meeting (1/22).
District 2 Councilman Willie T. Edmondson and District 1 Councilman Jim Arrington both stepped down from their seats to run for mayor. Having three seats vacant, the remaining four city council members unanimously voted to appoint Councilman Boddie to take the seat of Edmondson. Edmondson has less than one year left in his term, so according to city ordinance, a person can be appointed to fill the seat. Arrington has more than one year left in his term so an election will likely be held in June to fill this seat.
