AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – There’s a new member of the Augusta Commission.
Former District 4 Commissioner Alvin Mason has been appointed by commissioners to replace Sammie Sias.
Sias was suspended by Governor Brian Kemp after being indicted by a federal grand jury.
Mason served two terms on the commission.
“I’m prepared I’m ready and the thing is I just want the constituents of Augusta and District 4 in particular to know I’ve got your back and I will take care of you,” said Commissioner Mason.
Former District 4 candidate Betty Reece was the only other candidate nominated.
