Smith County Commissioners unanimously voted Tuesday, July
19, 2016, to name Tyler Attorney and former City Councilman Nathaniel Moran as
Acting Smith County Judge.
“I look forward to working with the current commissioners
and continuing as a group to be good stewards of the taxpayers’ money, to be
transparent in our activities and to move this county forward with a vision for
success,” Moran said.
Commissioners JoAnn Hampton, Jeff Warr, Terry Phillips and
Cary Nix agreed that all of the people who volunteered to be candidates for acting
county judge were good candidates and would have served the county well.
Moran will take the oath of office during a Commissioners
Court meeting at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, July 22, 2016.
