Doug Henderson is sworn in Friday as Beaufort County treasurer by Judge Marvin "Buddy" Kittrell, while Henderson's wife, Lindel, holds the Bible in County Council Chambers. Henderson, who ran as a write-in candidate, defeated longtime Republican incumbent Joy Logan in November. Unlike most elected officials, who typically are sworn in in January, treasurers' terms start at the beginning of the July 1-to-June 30 fiscal year.
