Candidates-elect from the most recent Livingston County election cycle were individually sworn into office on Monday afternoon (Dec. 31), in the third floor Circuit Courtroom of the Livingston County Courthouse.
Livingston County Clerk Sherry Parks oversaw the process, and assisted office-holders in their Bible-sworn oaths.
Swearing-in order went as follows:
• Tom Chapman, Circuit Judge, 43rd Circuit, Division 1 (Bible held by children Wagner and Callaway Chapman);
• Kenneth Lauhoff, Eastern District Commissioner (Bible held by granddaughter Olivia Lauhoff);
• Todd Rodenberg, Western District Commissioner (Bible held by wife Jody Rodenberg);
• and Sherry Parks, Public Administrator (Bible held by children Ashley Hawkins and Andy Parks).
Notably absent from Monday's swearing-in was Livingston County Coroner re-elect J. Scott Lindley.
Each of the aforementioned officials held their respective positions during the term prior to the elections, which took place back on Nov. 6, 2012.
