MIDLAND - Even though he won the job last month, on Tuesday Jerry Morales officially took the reins of the "At Large" Seat on the Midland City Council.
And Morales' first order of business was going to his first City Council meeting.
As soon as his swearing in ceremony was finished, Morales took his seat next to the rest of the council members.
When NewsWest 9 talked to Morales Tuesday morning he said he feels good about taking this seat, because of the business experience he already has from being an active member with the Midland community.
Morales is taking the place of Bill Dingus who stepped down from his position in order to run for the Texas State Legislature.
