With a promise to “make Crowley proud,” Timothy “Tim” Monceaux was sworn in as the new mayor in ceremonies Thursday afternoon.
Monceaux succeeds Greg Jones, who did not seek re-election after serving four consecutive terms as Crowley’s mayor.
“I spent the last 12 years as mayor of the best city there is,” Jones said in brief comments before the oaths were administered. “I’m proud to say I have a lot of friends on the new council and on the old one, friends that I think can work together because, if we don’t work together, it’s not for the good of the city.”
