New Mayor Michael Tubbs and new council members Susan Lenz and Jesús Andrade will be sworn in Tuesday at the year’s opening City Council meeting, which will be held not at City Hall but at the Bob Hope Theatre.
It’s always interesting to see who is granted the honor of swearing in new officials.
Tubbs has chosen his grandmother, Barbara Nicholson, to swear him in. Racole Dixon, Tubbs’ mother, swore him onto the council in 2013.
Andrade said he will be sworn in jointly by his wife, Andrea Andrade, and his father, Rafael Andrade Valencia. Lenz will be sworn in by her husband, Don Lenz.
Also to be sworn in Tuesday will be Dan Wright, who won the right to continue as the District 2 councilman in the November election. Wright will be sworn in by Dean McFalls, the former pastor at St. Mary’s Church. Wright said McFalls has officiated at several ceremonies for his family.
