Two new members to join City Council

WILMINGTON -- Wilmington's City Council welcomes two new members Tuesday night. Kristi Tomey and Ronald Sparks will be sworn in at Tuesday evening's meeting. The two are replacing former Councilwoman Lethia Hankins -- who did not run for re-election -- and Pat Delair, who was defeated in a runoff. Sparks is an engineer who hopes his experience will help solve the city's sewer problems. Tomey ran for council once before in 2003. She -- and most current council members -- are strong supporters of the city's new convention center. Councilwoman Laura Padgett and Mayor Bill Saffo will also be sworn in for another term.
