The newest member of the Commissioners Court was sworn in Thursday evening. Kirk Roccaforte received his oath of office from County Judge Carl Thibodeaux in the Commissioners Courtroom.
Family, friends, and many members of the municipal government in Bridge City where Roccaforte has served for over 20 years as mayor and alderman attended the ceremony. Roccaforte is replacing John Gothia as the County Commissioner for Precinct Three. He will officially assume the position of Commissioner at the next Commissioners Court meeting on Tuesday, July 16, when his bond is accepted by the other members of the Court.
