The hold on the appointment of former Councilman Wayne Edwards to the Minden City Council has been released, according to a letter sent to the city from the Secretary of State’s Office.
After originally being appointed back on April 23, the office then sent a letter to the city stating that that it was to be put on hold. The Governor has followed through on his appointment a little over a month later, granting Dist. A an interim representative after three months without one.
Mayor Terry Gardner stated that when they receive the paperwork from the Secretary of State’ Office, they will officially swear in Edwards.
“I’m sure Mr. Wayne Edwards will bring experience and make good decisions on behalf of the citizens of District A,” said Gardner.
When asked about his appointment as Dist. A Councilman, Wayne Edwards stated that he was honored by his appointment from Governor Edwards. “My sole responsibility is to take care of District A along with the City. To make sure that the things we do are in accordance with the City Charter and existing law, and that it benefits the rise of other people of the city,” said Edwards.
