On Monday, Monroe Councilman Tyler Gregory was sworn in by Alcovy Judicial Circuit Court Judge Eugene Benton in front with his wife, Lauren at his side. Gregory was elected in last week’s District 6 Special Election to fill the unexpired term of the late Wayne Adcock who passed away unexpectedly on Easter Sunday.
After the ceremony, an emotional Gregory addressed the officials and family and friends who turned up to witnesses the swearing in. He told them he was honored to be elected and promised to work for the residents for the good of the city, not just for current residents but also for the future residents who may chose to make Monroe their home.
Gregory took his seat Tuesday for his first official meeting as a member of the Monroe City Council.
