They solemnly swear

Jenny Halverson will move one chair over. The new West St. Paul mayor was previously a councilmember for Ward 2 before winning the mayoral election in November.

Neil Garlock was sworn in as the new mayor of Mendota Heights at the first council meeting of the year. The former police sergeant defeated Sandra Krebsbach, who had been mayor since 2011.

Jimmy Francis was sworn in by his wife Juliette. Francis fills the mayor seat that was open after longtime mayor Beth Baumann announced she wouldn’t run for reelection.

On Tuesday, Jan. 3, three new mayors were sworn in for the start of their first terms.
