General Sessions Judge Toby Gilley will swear-in newly elected Mayor Shane McFarland and Murfreesboro City Council members, Madelyn Scales Harris, Rick LaLance, and the newest Council member, Ronnie Martin, during a special ceremony, Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018, at 6 p.m. in the City Hall Rotunda.

Who:  Mayor Shane McFarland, Council Member Madelyn Scales Harris, Council Member Rick LaLance and the newest Murfreesboro City Council Member Ronnie Martin will be sworn-in.

What:  General Sessions Judge Toby Gilley will perform official installation of the oath of office.

When:  Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018 - 6:00 p.m. 

Where:  Murfreesboro City Hall Rotunda

              111 West Vine Street

              Murfreesboro, TN 37133

This election and swearing-in will fill all Council seats. In December 2016, the late Vice Mayor Doug Young passed away after a long battle with cancer. At that time, Council decided to leave the seat vacant until the outcome of the August 2, 2018 election when a candidate could fill the seat for a full four-year term. Doing so avoided the need to hold a special election that would have cost an estimated $61,000, according to Rutherford County Election administrator Alan Farley.

The top three votes received in the Council election were: Madelyn Scales Harris, 9,014, Rick LaLance, 7,476 and Ronnie Martin, 7,267. Incumbent Mayor Shane McFarland, who ran unopposed, received 15,671 votes.
