Carrollton Swears in City Councilmembers
|Mayor Falconer (top) and Councilmember Polter (bottom)|
|Councilmembers Sung (top) and Palacios (bottom)|
The last two of the four Carrollton City Council seats scheduled for this year’s election were sworn in during the Tuesday, November 17 meeting at City Hall.
Current Mayor Kevin Falconer was sworn in for a second term and Adam Polter was sworn in to Place 2, filling the seat held by Councilmember Mike Hennefer who did not seek reelection.
Falconer won the mayoral position with 80.5 percent of the votes. Polter won the Place 2 seat with 62.99 percent of the votes. All votes have been certified.
Amid coronavirus concerns, the state required local governments in the spring to postpone contested elections and both Falconer and Hennefer continued serving until the November election.
Uncontested candidates, Young Sung and Andrew Palacios, were sworn in during the Tuesday, May 12 meeting at City Hall and began serving that evening. Sung was sworn in for a second term to Place 6 and Palacios was sworn in for Place 4, filling the seat held by Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Frances Cruz who did not seek reelection.
