Shortly after 11 AM today, Coupland history was made when Judge Judy Schier Hobbs (Justice of the Peace, Williamson County Precinct 4) administered the oath of office to the new Mayor, Jack Piper. He was followed by four Aldermen and the Marshal, Russell Schmidt. The Aldermen who were sworn in today were Karen Marosko, Susan Schmidt, Eldridge Tidwell, and Barbara Piper. Susan Garry will be sworn in later. She is out of state assisting a relative who is in poor health.
Please keep our new public servants in your prayers. The journey to get to this point has been long and challenging. Much work remains to be done and many important decisions will be made in the new few weeks.
