Traughber (nearsest to camera) looks on at an Elkton City Council meeting.
The City of Elkton hired a new attorney at its special-called meeting last week, but he certainly is no stranger to the community.
Elkton native Jeff Traughber was unanimously approved by council and he began his duties immediately.
Traughber practices at Dillingham and Traughber Law Firm in Elkton and he says he’s always had an interest in public service.
He says his roots in Elkton give him an advantage over someone who may have been hired from another community because he has background knowledge of issues currently facing the city.
Traughber replaces longtime attorney John Kirkham.
