New Year, New Officials

A standing-room-only crowd packed the Fayette County District Courtroom on New Year’s morning to witness the swearing-in of a dozen county officials.

District Judge Jeff Steinhauser began the ceremony by delivering the oath of office to the new County Judge, Joe Weber.

“I want to thank all the citizens who voted for me, and even those who didn’t vote for me but voted for somebody,” Weber said after taking the oath. “I’m your judge. I’m not the judge of the Republicans, I’m not the judge for the Democrats, and I’m not the judge for the liberals or conservatives. I’m the judge for everybody in this county. I pledge to all of them … I won’t let you down, I promise.
