During a special meeting on Monday, Aug. 21, the Village of Pinehurst Council members unanimously voted to appoint Tom Hennie to fill the empty council seat after Jane Hogeman’s death in July.
By North Carolina law, the Village Council appointed Hennie to fill the vacant position on the council to serve the remainder of Hogeman’s term, which expires Nov. 30.
The appointment came after interviews with three of the four applicants: Kevin Drum, Tom Hennie, and Brandon Lankford. Applicant Brett Anthony was not available for an interview.
Hennie is a familiar face to the Village of Pinehurst as an active Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.) member with the police department.
Hennie will take the oath of office and be seated as a member during their next meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 4:30 p.m., in Assembly Hall at 395 Magnolia Road.
