A new member of Delaware City Council took his seat for his first meeting with that body on Monday night.

Stephen Tackett was selected by fellow Council members on July 8 to serve as its First Ward representative, replacing the retired Chris Jones.

City Council had undertaken a process which involved a series of interviews for six candidates. He was chosen in the second round of voting.

Tackett, a lifelong member of Delaware, was sworn into office by City Attorney Natalia Harris at a special Council meeting taking place immediately before Council’s regular meeting.
