Mayor Jennifer Hosterman and City Council members Cheryl Cook-Kallio and Jerry Thorne will be sworn into office tonight after winning re-election November 2.
All three will start the final terms of office, with Hosterman having been re-elected to a fourth-two-year term as mayor and Cook-Kallio and Thorne to four-year terms. Hosterman will be termed out in 2012; the two council members in 2014.
They will join fellow council members Cindy McGovern and Matt Sullivan, who are serving their second four-year terms of office and will be termed out in 2012.
The swearing in, to be handled by City Clerk Karen Diaz, will follow an official proclamation by the Alameda County Registrar's office certifying the results of the Nov. 2 election.
Thorne led in total votes received, finishing with 10,683 votes, or 33.4% of the total number of votes cast in the City Council race. Cook-Kallio received 8,971 votes. Two others were unsuccessful in their bids for council seats. Realtor Karla Brown received 8,511 votes, and Fred Watson trailed with 3,770 votes.
A public reception for the mayor and re-elected council members will be held starting at 5:45 tonight, followed by the swearing-in ceremonies at the start of tonight's City Council meeting at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
