Frank White Sworn In

Frank White Jr. has a new position. 

During its Jan. 11 meeting, the Jackson County Legislature selected him to serve as County Executive through the remainder of 2016. 

Upon resigning as Executive on Jan. 5, Mike Sanders named former County Legislator Fred Arbanas the Temporary County Executive. In accordance with the County Charter, the Legislature has now appointed a replacement. White was sworn in as County Executive at the Historic Truman Courthouse this afternoon. 

To assume the duties of Executive, he stepped down as 1st District At-Large County Legislator. 

“I am humbled by the support of my colleagues,” said White. “I am looking forward to working with the administrative team to continue the successes of the past few years. Our county employees are hard-working, and making sure they have the tools they need to serve our residents will be one of my top priorities.”
