Mayor of New Boston steps down after serving for 25 years


NEW BOSTON, Texas (KETK) – This week longtime New Boston Mayor, Johnny Branson, stepped down after serving the community for over 25 years. The move is effective immediately and Councilman David Turner will carry out the duties of Mayor as needed.

  • Joe Dyke
  • Donald Evans
  • Ron Humphrey

The council’s next meeting is scheduled for mid-September.
