To be seated
Seats for Meridian mayor’s position and two city council members were open. With no contenders to those who filed for office, no elections were necessary. Mayor Johnnie Hauerland will enter a second term as Meridian’s Mayor, Jeff Hicks extends his city council participation and Connie Tweedle enters the city council arena. On the eve of their renewed service to the city, the Meridian Tribune asked the Mayor and the council members to state their priorities and interests; and to re-introduce themselves to the public.
