MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- The act is now official. Thursday morning Dimitri Polizos took the oath of office and was sworn in as Alabama Representative for District 74.
The ceremony took place in the chamber of the Alabama Civil Court of Criminal Appeals.
The swearing in had been postponed following Polizos' win so the Alabama GOP and Secretary of State's office could confirm and certify the results.
Polizos, who was a Montgomery County Commissioner up until his win in the District 74 special election, will be part of the political process starting with the next legislative session. That session is slated to begin on January 14, 2014.
