OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A month ago, Omaha voters cast their ballot for mayor and city council, and those final decisions were officially put into action on Monday as the mayor and a new city council were sworn in.
It is the official start of a new term in Omaha, but quite a few familiar faces are returning.
Mayor Jean Stothert was sworn in for a historic third term after an overwhelming election victory last month.
Three new faces are joining the city council this term.
Juanita Johnson will be representing District 2. Last month, she beat long-time council member Ben Gray by just over a thousand votes.
The new representative for District 3 will be Danny Begley, who is taking the spot of Chris Jerram. He decided to not run for re-election this year.
Festersen was tabbed as City Council President on Monday. Palermo was again selected as City Council Vice President.
