On Monday, Nov. 21, the courthouse bell chimed at 5 p.m. signaling the start of the Swearing in Ceremony for recently elected Madison, Fl. officials.  Rev. Sim Alexander gave the opening prayer.  Current and the out-going Clerk of Courts, Tim Sanders shared a stirring opening that began by acknowledging the courthouse bell.  Sanders praised the new elected officials while applauding outgoing candidates for a peaceful transfer of power.  The ceremony was for the swearing in of newly elected constitutional officers, county commissioners and school board members.
