Following the swearing-in ceremony, commissioners held a brief meeting during which they elected Tracy Wandell to serve as the next chair of the Commission, succeeding Tim Isbel.
Longtime Commissioner Jerry Creasey was elected vice chair.
A parliamentarian will likely be selected later this month when the Commission meets in regular seassion.
There are several new commissioners on Anderson County Commission, including one in District 2 and two in District 3, and a few other members who won their first commission election after being appointed to fill a vacant seat.
