“I do solemnly swear,” intoned City Clerk Inez Brown, as she led the nine members of the Flint city council through their oath of office.
The new city council were sworn in today at noon. Five of the nine council members are new to the job. Last week, Flint voters ousted a majority of incumbents from the panel.
Flint Mayor Karen Weaver suggests voters wanted the new blood on the council to move beyond old arguments.
