The City of West Columbia City Council held a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday to administer the oath of office to the newly-elected Mayor Tem Miles.
“It has been an honor to serve as a council member for the last 6 years. I am beyond thrilled that the people of West Columbia have allowed me the opportunity to continue to serve in the role of Mayor,” Miles stated. “I look forward to serving all members of our community and keeping the positive momentum going for all parts of our city.”
He was sworn in by state Sen. Nikki Setzler of West Columbia, who is also the city’s attorney. Miles replaces departing Mayor Bobby Horton, who served three terms as West Columbia mayor before stepping down this year. Horton, who endorsed Miles, was in attendance, as a spectator, during Tuesday’s swearing in.
