Former 7th District Commissioner M.A. Bouldin’s shoes will be hard to fill, but commissioners elected someone who may come very close during Monday night’s full Warren County Commission meeting.Bouldin’s widow, Johnnie Belle Bouldin, was sworn in following the meeting and will retain her husband’s seat until the county election on Aug. 7, 2014. When County Executive John Pelham was explaining the swearing in process, Bouldin said she does not swear. Pelham said that is fine, she could solemnly affirm.The County Commission followed guidelines used in 2008 for filling a similar vacancy in District 9.
