Leader photo by JESSICA DARDEN- Ragan Aswell will vacate his seat on the Choudrant Town Council in January.

Four years on a town council is a term for most public officials. But for Ragan Aswell his four-year term turned into 48 years rather quickly.

“I was 22 or 24 when I was first appointed to the council,” Aswell said, as he took a seat inside his shop, Aswell Fertilizer and Feed Store.

“A lot of things have changed since I’ve been on the council.”

Aswell refers to the town council for the village of Choudrant, which he has been a member of for nearly five decades.

At age 74, Aswell said he decided to not seek re-election for his expiring term.
