Harris was appointed mayor in July 1980 to fill an unexpired term. Then he was elected in 1981 and served until December 1985.

John Sims, former county judge-executive, was sheriff when Harris was mayor. ``He was one of Lincoln County's better citizens. He was very active in a lot of things,'' Sims said. ``He was a super nice guy.''
Born Feb. 20, 1914, in Lincoln County, he was a son of the late James Anderson and Jennie Pepples Harris. He was a farmer and had been active in the Lincoln County Farm Bureau, the Democratic Party and had served on the Lincoln County Fair Board. He was a member of Stanford Christian Church.
