CORNING - Mayor Bill Boland and five councilmen were sworn into office Sunday morning at City Hall.
Boland said he is looking forward to his first term as mayor.
“I think getting started on initiatives like the housing and the economic development studies we’ve been working on are important,” Boland said. “We will be tackling those and other important issues.”
First Ward Councilman Diane Telehany, second ward Councilman Kate Paterson, seventh ward councilman Mark ReSue and incumbents Chris Karam and Frank Muccini were also sworn into office at the event.
“I’m excited,” Telehany said moments after being sworn into office. “I can’t wait to serve the first ward.”
“I’m very excited to get to work,” Paterson said. “I want to make sure that improvements keep happening in the second ward, seeing how things progress with the old hospital site and it’s smooth sailing for the ward.”
ReSue said he is prepared for the next four years of representing the seventh ward on the City Council.
“I looking forward to moving forward with the positive growth and changes to keep the City of Corning a great place to live and visit,” ReSue said.
Councilmen Karam and Muccini both said they look forward to continuing to represent their wards and the City of Corning.
