LAKE CITY, FL – After a 4 year absence beginning in 2012, former city councilman Jake Hill was reelected in August to the City Council. Last night in the council chambers, City Clerk Audrey Sikes gave Mr. Hill the Oath of Office with his wife Deborah and daughter Ba-Brea by his side.

In a brief phone conversation after the conclusion of last night's City Council meeting, Mr. Hill told the Observer, "I'm glad to be back to serve the people. I'm going to try and get things done for the City – and also some things undone."

Mr. Hill concluded, "I'm going to hold people accountable and I am going to be asking the tough questions."

Also taking the Oath last night were incumbents Mayor Steve Witt and City Councilwoman Melinda Moses.
