Kevin Bateman is sworn in as the new District 6 Logan County Board member by Circuit Judge Thomas Harris yesterday afternoon. Bateman says he has thought of becoming involved with local government for some time and seized the opportunity to be appointed to take the place of Michael McIntosh, who won election as the Logan County state's attorney.

Board chairman Terry Carlton says Bateman will initially be placed on the committees for roads and bridges, airport, and animal control.

Kevin and his wife, Peggy, live at 455 Campus View Drive. They have four grown children, two grandchildren and two more grandchildren expected soon. Page 1
