City Council Honors Max Ledesma

Levelland City Council had a meeting today at noon To canvas the 2021 General Elections and declare the results. The oath of office was given to two new Council members: Mary Engledow of District B, and Michael Stueart of District D, as well as to the re-elected Mayor, Barbra Penner. Mary won her district election 21 votes to 14 against incumbent Max Ledesma, and Michael won his in a vote of 158 to 91 against Jacob Tucker. Both were sworn in and invited by the council to take their newly appointed seats. With Max Ledesma departing from the Council, they wanted to honor him and his time he’s invested serving the City of Levelland. Max was mayor Pro-Tem for 8 years and oversaw a variety of highly important additions to the city including the Parks Renovations and Fire Station. He received a plaque and gave a brief speech afterwards reminding us that should we ever need his help, “I’ll be here.”
