McMinnville officials have given the unexpired alderman term on the board to Ken Smith. The move took place last nightSmith says he has been watching city government over the past few years and has no qualms about serving.“If you believe things are not right and you talk about them and you are asked to serve, you should serve or you should be quiet,” said Smith. “When Jimmy Haley called me to ask if I would serve his remaining two years, I felt it was my community service to do so.”The two years of Haley’s alderman term are available because he was voted mayor in November.
