Esmeralda Moya swearing in
GALENA PARK – History was made in this city Tuesday night, as the first woman mayor was sworn into office.

The ceremony took place in Council Chambers, with an overflow crowd on hand to see the event and to encourage Moya on her first day in office.

Also sworn in was newly elected Councilman Juan Flores, Jr. who captured Position 4 in the run-off election held June 21st.

Moya’s oath took place at the end of a council session that had a large agenda, including a number of hires and resignations to the city staff. After taking office, Moya’s first official duty was to declare the council meeting adjourned, which she did with a wry smile amidst applause from the audience.
