Elected officials sworn into office

Recently elected Bourbon County officials were sworn into office by District Judge Mark Ward Monday, as some return for new terms and others begin to serve for the first time.


“This is one of two rare occasions for a district judge that is a joyful occasion,” Ward said, saying that situation and adoptions can be the only occasions people exit the courtroom feeling like winners.

Officials sworn in included Sheriff Bill Martin, register of deeds Lora Holdridge, treasurer Rhonda Dunn, attorney Justin Meeks, clerk Kendell Mason and commissioners Nick Ruhl and Jeff Fischer.

“Do you solemnly swear that you will support the constitution of the United States of America and the constitution of the state of Kansas?” Ward asked each official, going on to ask if they would faithfully discharge the duties of their specific office.
