TWIN FALLS — It’s been five years since Christopher Reid first bid for City Council. On Tuesday, he finally took his seat at the table.
Mayor Shawn Barigar officiated Reid’s swearing-in ceremony at the City Council meeting, as Reid swore to support the state and federal constitutions and carry out his new duties to the best of his abilities.
“The easy part’s over now, Reid,” Councilman Christopher Talkington said as the new Council member sat down.
Reid was appointed to replace Don Hall, who received a plaque of appreciation for 11 years of service. Hall resigned from the seat after he was elected to the Twin Falls County Commission.
“I believe (Reid) is going to serve this community very well,” Hall said.
After casting his first two votes as councilman, Reid told the Times-News his work on Planning and Zoning Commission helped him “understand the city and how it works and what the citizens want.”
