Fort Wayne, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - The Allen County Democratic Party sent a news release Friday announcing the appointment of Austin Knox to serve as Wayne Township Trustee.
Knox had been serving in an interim capacity. The party held a caucus Friday to name a permanent replacement for now retired Trustee Rick Stevenson.
"We couldn’t be more pleased," Chairwoman Misti Meehan said in the release. "Trustee Knox has already shown he is a dedicated steward of the community during his five years working for Wayne Township. Austin is engaged in the community and has a servant’s heart."
"I’m excited to continue to work for and with the people of Wayne Twp," Knox says, "I will pick up the ball from where Trustee Stevenson left it and continue on the path."
