At the July 11 Galax City Council meeting, Mayor C.M. Mitchell and Vice Mayor Willie Greene were both reappointed to their respective positions by council, after Judge. J.D. Bolt swore in members.
The council members were the re-elected Sharon Plichta and Bill Davis and the newly-elected Ches Helmick.
At the end of the meeting, a new resident of Galax, Josepha Thompson, rose to speak, after being introduced by Greene as a friend.
“She’s interested in just being involved, and I appreciate her coming,” said Greene.
