December, 06, 2011

Monday night the new city council and Mayor Nancy McFarlane were sworn in by District Court Judge Jane Gray.  The event was a humble celebration for a city approaching 400,000 residents, held in the convention center lobby, a formal but Spartan affair and a reflection of the fiscal caution that marks this era.
