Ward 3 Alderman, Julia King, was sworn into office on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, at the regularly scheduled Board of Aldermen meeting.

Alderman King is currently a Project Manager for Healthcare Performance Group. She fills the Alderman position left by Kevin McConnell. McConnell resigned from the Board of Aldermen on August 7, 2020. King 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.

Branson Mayor Edd Akers met with and interviewed each candidate with a panel of four former and current elected officials. Julia King was chosen unanimously by the panel due to her strong ethics, business acumen, and desire to serve the City of Branson.  The Branson Board of Aldermen then voted unanimously during a special meeting on August 11, 2020, to approve Julia King to fill the open Ward 3 Alderman position.

King will serve until the next municipal election which is in April of 2021. You can read more about Alderman King in her biography, on the front page of our website,
