At a brief ceremony on Tuesday at North Little Rock City Hall, newly elected city officials were sworn-in.
The newest face is a familiar one as Vince Insalaco III was sworn-in to represent Ward 4 in North Little Rock.
Insalaco defeated incumbent council member Jane Ginn last November by six votes, 46.7 percent to 46.61 percent. Insalaco was widely supported financially by North Little Rock mayors, past and present as current Mayor Terry Hartwick, and former mayors Joe Smith and Pat Hays all gave campaign donations.
Others sworn in by Judge Paula Juels Jones were Council Members Debi Ross, Linda Robinson and Steve Baxter. Amy Fields was also sworn in as City Attorney. All four were incumbents.
At a separate ceremony Jones swore in her husband, Will Jones, as the newly elected Prosecuting Attorney. Will Jones replaced a retiring Larry Jegley as the Sixth District prosecutor who serves Pulaski and Perry counties.
