Mark NeSmith is the Thomas County Commission District 4 commissioner.
NeSmith was sworn in late Friday morning by Thomas County Probate Judge Vickie Burnette at the Thomas County Judicial Center.
“It’s great,” NeSmith said about being a newly sworn county commissioner. “I’m ready to get to work.”
NeSmith was elected to the office in a special election Tuesday. The District 4 seat became vacant in April with the death of Louis Rehberg.
NeSmith defeated Mike Keown for the post.
The new commissioner could not be sworn in until proper election paperwork was submitted to the secretary of state’s office.
NeSmith is eager to begin fulfilling duties Monday at the first of two days of county government budget hearings.
He will be a candidate for the District 4 commission seat in 2012, when the post will be up for election again.
