Over a hundred people gathered yesterday at the Chelan County Courthouse to hear eight newly elected officials take their oaths of office. Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair attended the ceremony and afterwards spoke with Chelan County’s new superior court clerk, Kim Morrison . .
Also taking their oaths of office Tuesday were Treasurer, Dave Griffiths, Sheriff, Brian Burnett, Assessor Vickie Trudell, Coroner, Wayne Harris and Commissioner Keith Goehner
Two other county officials did not attend the ceremony. Reelected Prosecutor, Gary Reisen was sworn into office in a private ceremony on Monday and District Court Judge Alisha Nakata is on vacation and will give her oath of office at a later date.
Its interesting to note that the former Vickie Griffin who was elected to replace Assessor Russ Griffin has changed her name to Trudell following her December 4th marriage.
The newly elected officials will formally assume their duties after the new year.
