VERNON, AL.- (WCBI) Friends, family members, and supporters witnessed the swearing-in of Vernon’s new mayor Monday. Glenn Crawford took the oath at a small ceremony held at city hall.
Vernon’s run-off election last month had one of the largest voter turnouts in years.
Crawford says the residents of Vernon are ready for a change, and he has big plans for the small West Alabama town.
“We are going to immediately start by contracting with an economic development director to come in and begin to help us put the town back into shape where we can attract business and industry to come in. We need some jobs and that we are going to work for,” say Crawford.
The ceremony was followed by their regular meeting.
