The Branson Board of Aldermen voted unanimously during a special meeting on August 11, 2020, to approve, Julia King, to fill the open Ward 3 Alderman position.
Julia King is currently a Project Manager for Healthcare Performance Group. She was appointed using the process in accordance with a state statute in which the Mayor selects one name out of the list of applicants. That person is then voted by the Board of Aldermen, with the Mayor not voting.
King fills the Alderman position left by Kevin McConnell. McConnell resigned from the Board of Aldermen August 7, 2020, after he moved out of his ward and, according to City code, was no longer able to serve on the board.
King will be sworn in at the August 25, 2020, regular Board of Aldermen meeting.
