Town and Country's three new aldermen were sworn in Monday night.
Former Town and Country Mayor Richard “Skip” Mange took the Ward 1 seat vacated by Alderman Nancy Avioli. Mange beat out resident Dorothy Cooke for the seat with 53 percent of the vote.
In Ward 2, Chuck Lenz is replacing Al Gerber with nearly 60 percent of the votes.
Gussie Crawford, a newcomer to politics, was sworn in replacing Steve Fons in Ward 3. She beat Fons with nearly 60 percent of the vote.
Ward 4 incumbent Phil Behnen maintained his seat and was also sworn in Monday night. He was up for reelction, but ran unopposed.
All three candidates sworn in Monday night primarily support sharpshooting as a method of deer management in the city, which many voters said was a key issue that brought them out to the polls in the April 3 election.
Mayor Jon Dalton also recognized outgoing aldermen Nancy Avioli, Al Gerber and Steve Fons for their service to the city as aldermen and the various commissions they sat on.
