Within the span of about five minutes today Cincinnati Council accepted the resignation of one member and witnessed the swearing-in of a replacement.
Cecil Thomas ended his Council service after more than seven years. He's leaving early because term limits prevent him from seeking re-election in November.
Thomas’ wife, Pamula, was appointed to take his place and she'll be on the ballot this fall.
She said she'll strive to represent the city with transparency, fortitude and integrity.
