New Board Members Sworn In

Recently elected and re-elected Gloucester County Board of Supervisors and School Board members were officially sworn in during a special ceremony Friday afternoon in the Colonial Courthouse.

Shown, from left, are newly elected Petsworth District Board of Supervisors member Kenneth W. Gibson; newly elected Gloucester School Board member Carlton Drew, York District representative; and Kevin Smith, who was re-elected to the Board of Supervisors as an at-large representative.
Due to scheduling conflicts, the other newly elected and re-elected officials will be sworn in separately in the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office.
