Kenyan McDuffie was sworn in as Ward 5 councilmember Wednesday afternoon. The occasion marks the first time in nearly five months that residents of the ward have a person sitting on the DC Council.
Kenyan McDuffie is set to become the newest member of the D.C. Council.
District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray is praising Kenyan McDuffie as the person to replace Harry Thomas Jr. on the city council.
There will soon be a new member of the D.C. Council to replace Harry Thomas Jr., who stepped down from his Ward 5 seat after pleading guilty to embezzling more than $350,000 from the city.
