New Mayor, Mayor Pro Tem Sworn In

Tuesday night saw a ceremonial farewell to Mayor Joe Krovoza who served as Davis Mayor from 2011 until last night.  Dan Wolk would be sworn in as the new mayor.  Rochelle Swanson, now the senior member of the council, was sworn in for her second term.  And Robb Davis was sworn in as new councilmember and Mayor Pro Tem.

However, unlike past years, this night was about policy as three huge issues loomed – water, parcel tax, and the innovation parks – all of which will be resolved in one way or another tonight.
