Montgomery County’s new sheriff is on the job. The oath of office was administered Dec. 1 to Chris Watkins in a public ceremony held at First Baptist Church in Troy.
Clerk of Superior Court John Deaton was also installed for another term.
In a separate ceremony at the County Administration Building, the oath of office was administered to newly-elected Montgomery County Commissioner Michael Chriscoe and re-elected commissioner Jackie Morris.
Reports say both ceremonies were well attended.
