Things were pretty quiet Wednesday morning when Bill Woolsey, a long-time economics professor at The Citadel, took office as the mayor of James Island.
He was greeted on his first day by just a couple of the town's nine employees as he surveyed the offices and council chambers.
Woolsey, who defeated incumbent Mary Clark by a margin of 2-to-1 on Aug. 3, was sworn in on Aug. 19 but did not take office until Wednesday.
Other councilmembers who were elected on Aug. 3 were Carter McMillan, Robin Welch, Karen Wilder-Smalls and incumbent Leonard Blank.
The first town council meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 7).
