STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

A new voice has joined the Statesboro City Council. 

District 5 member Derek Duke took the Oath of Office Wednesday afternoon after winning a special election runoff last week. Duke is a retired military and commercial pilot. While this is his first political office, he has been in local government for a while. 

"I've realized for quite some time while serving on county planning and zoning that I could help the city of Statesboro move forward," Duke said. 

Duke won an election to fill the unexpired term of former councilmember, Travis Chance.
