One of the two Hollister Aldermen getting sworn in tonight for a new term in office was the winner in a competition between two write-in candidates.
In the recent Municipal Election, the Alderman Ward II seat was open when no candidate was certified after the end of the filing period in January. Incumbent Dave Willard defeated the other write in candidate, Trent Davis 52-32.
Willard and fellow incumbent Alderman Lamar Patton are scheduled to be sworn in at tonight’s Board of Aldermen meeting beginning at 7:00.
