Albuquerque mayor Richard Berry has appointed former State Legislator Janice Arnold-Jones to fill the vacated District 7 City Council.

Arnold-Jones was due to be sworn in Monday afternoon and was scheduled to participate in Monday evening’s Council meeting.

"I worked with Janice during my time in the legislature and found her to be very professional and passionate about her commitment to good government,” said Mayor Berry. 

Arnold-Jones succeeds Michael Cook, who resigned following a DWI arrest earlier this month.
