James King, newly elected to the Seaford City Council, was sworn in at the start of last weeks meeting. Accompanying him were his wife, Kristi, and their great niece, Adalyn Thompson, who is 16 months old.

Also sworn in were returning Councilman Orlando Holland and Mayor David Genshaw. Holland is starting his second full term. He was appointed to the council in 2014 to fill a vacancy and won reelection the following year.

Genshaw is starting his third full term. He was elected to the council in 2012 and was named mayor in August 2013 when Bill Bennett resigned from that position to take a job with the city. Genshaw was reelected mayor in 2014 and again in 2016.

Council members serve three-year terms.

The mayor serves a two-year term.

The swearing-in ceremony was conducted by Justice of the Peace Jennifer Sammons.

Following the ceremony, council members selected Councilman Dan Henderson to serve as vice mayor. Genshaw made the following liaison appointments: Holland, administration and information and technology; King, parks and recreation and code; Councilman William Mulvaney, electric department; Councilwoman Leanne Phillips-Lowe, public works and wastewater; and Henderson, the police department.
