Making history – Everyone should witness the swearing in

Published 9:13 pm Thursday, January 10, 2019

This coming Saturday, history will be made at Wallace Community College-Selma Gymnasium when Jimmy Nunn officially becomes the first black Probate Judge in Dallas County.

Nunn will continue the success that former Probate Judge Kim Ballard and Johnny Jones started.

The former Selma City Attorney and Assistant County District has a lot of plans for the county.

“One of the things we’re trying to do is unify Dallas County and working together with the different municipalities and agencies,” Nunn said. “That includes the cities of Valley Grande, Orrville and Selma.”

Repairing the county roads is another priority on Nunn’s to-do list.

Everyone that can should attend the swearing in of Nunn, which takes place at 3 p.m.

This is history in the making, and a major step for Dallas County.
