Surrounded by friends, family, and city staff members, Sturgeon Bay’s newly elected Common Council members were sworn into office Thursday morning.
It was the second time for Kelly Catarozoli, having been re-elected to keep her seat representing District 1. Catarozoli called it a tremendous honor.
It has been several years District 5 alderperson Barb Allmann was sworn into office as a member of the Sturgeon Bay Common Council. Allmann said she has a better idea of what to expect from the position this time around.
The pomp and circumstance of the swearing-in ceremony was new for District 3 alderperson David Ward, he said he was previously sworn in by city officials to an empty room.
District 7 Laurel Hauser was grateful to everyone that helped her get sworn into office for the first time.
The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will next meet on April 18.
