Sedalia Mayor John Kehde has appointed Andrew Dawson of West 7th Street to fill the unexpired term of the late Russell Driskell, who died last week.

The announcement was listed in the Sedalia City Council packet for Monday night's regular Council meeting.

Dawson will be officially sworn in near the start of the meeting and will represent Sedalia's Second Ward.

Driskell, who served five years on the Council, was originally listed unopposed on the April 2 ballot.
