Back from Afghanistan, David Peterson was sworn in once again as a member of the Sartell City Council at its March 12 meeting.
Peterson was thanked for his service and welcomed back warmly by the council and city staff.
For the past seven months, Peterson served as a member of the Minnesota National Guard in Afghanistan. A couple of years ago, he also took a hiatus from the Sartell City Council to serve many months in Iraq. He has been elected twice to the council.
The man who filled in for Peterson in his absence, Dennis Molitor, was given a plaque of appreciation and thanks by staff and council.
