Three po­lit­i­cal new­com­ers — Mary Slade, Christy Hol­lan­der and Tyler Alt — elected by Leonard­town vot­ers ear­lier this month were sworn in Mon­day dur­ing the town’s coun­cil meet­ing.

They joined two in­cum­bents, Hay­den Ham­mett and Jay Mat­tingly, who are both serv­ing their sec­ond term, to form the new coun­cil.

At the meet­ing, Mayor Dan Bur­ris ap­pointed new mem­bers to the town’s plan­ning and zon­ing com­mis­sion as well as its board of ap­peals.

As Hol­lan­der and Alt both served on the plan­ning com­mis­sion, two seats be­came open af­ter they left to serve on the town coun­cil. Bur­ris ap­pointed Chris Jeys, who lost his coun­cil bid on May 1, and Jeff Brown, who served on the board of ap­peals, to fill the two seats on the plan­ning com­mis­sion.

Join­ing Dar­ren Meyer and Bobby Went­worth, three new mem­bers — Jack Can­dela, Nick Colvin and An­drew Ponti — were ap­pointed to the town’s board of ap­peals. Colvin and Ponti also ran for coun­cil this year but lost.

The new coun­cil agreed with the mayor’s choices in con­sen­sus.
