Its official! I was sworn in this afternoon to the term to which I was elected. I am honored to have your support and will do my best to live up to the trust you have put in me. Videos are in the comments.

In case anyone is really interested, here are two videos my husband shot during and immediately following the ceremony.

I should have added this as well. We had a great crowd (someone counted 98 people) for what I initially hoped would be a small, private ceremony.

What an encouraging example of community engagement with a rewarding result. Thank you, Judge Laura, for all your hard work and dedication to strong, humane leadership. Thank you to thousands of voters who noticed.

Sorry I missed this one but so glad Richard took the video and you shared it.

Congratulations! So happy to have the pleasure to work with you!

Sad I missed it! Had to teach. A wonderful photo, and an amazing thing for our county that you’re here serving 🙂 thanks Judge Riquelme! 🙂
