Todd Sutton was sworn in to the Johnston County Board of Education on Dec. 7 at the Johnston County Courthouse in Smithfield.
Mr. Sutton was sworn in by Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Thomas Lock. He was accompanied by his wife, children and several other family members and friends.
“The overwhelming amount of support I have is something I’m very humbled by,” said Mr. Sutton. “This seat belongs to the people of Johnston County, not me. I can assure you I will always put people first, policy second, and politics third.”
Mr. Sutton has served on the Board of Education since 2017.
