New Councilors Sworn In

Councilor at-large Julia Mejia – amidst tremendous applause – has a very emotional moment on stage after being sworn in as the first Latina ever on the Boston City Council during Monday’s Inauguration Exercises. Mejia’s journey to the Council included a narrow one-vote win over candidate Alejandra St. Guillen. Her many supporters in Faneuil Hall wore buttons that read, ‘One Vote Counts,’ and she received numerous applause throughout the ceremony. Mejia and 10 other councllors – including JP Councilor Matt O’Malley – took the Oath of Office on Monday, Jan. 6, at Faneuil Hall.
