After Darrell Curry resigned from the Dublin City Council last month, the council selected Cliff Jackson to fill the Ward 2 vacancy.

Jackson was officially sworn in by Dublin City Secretary Rhonda Williams on Monday night in the old Dublin ISD Auditorium.

Jackson, who was raised in Lingleville and will finish out Curry’s term said, “I’m very honored to be selected and am ready to get to work.”

Immediately following Jackson’s swearing in, Mayor David Leatherwood presented long-serving councilman Darrell Curry with a commemorative plaque for his service to the city.

“We hate to lose Darrell Curry because he has been an active, productive member of the Dublin City Council," Leatherwood said. "But we welcome Cliff Jackson to the council and look forward to working with him in the coming months. The city of Dublin is very fortunate to have both of them.”

Asked about his tenure as a Dublin City Councilman, Curry said, “I’ve been doing this for six years, started in 2010. That’s a long time and it’s just time to move on. This is a good, hardworking council and I’m proud to have been a part of it.”
