Camden City Council will recognize outgoing councilmen Walter Long and Willard Polk as they attend their last meeting Tuesday night. Long and Polk chose not to run for reelection. Voters elected former mayor Jeffrey Graham and Deborah Davis as Long and Polk’s replacements. They are tentatively scheduled to be sworn in at 5 p.m. Dec. 1, and will take their seats on council at its Dec. 9 meeting.
