New Elected Officials Sworn in at Inauguration

Newly elected officials and veteran officials alike were on stage inside Woburn Memorial High School.

Woburn residents got their first glimpse of the city's government on Monday night.

A large crowd came out to Woburn Memorial High School for the 85th annual inauguration ceremony as newly elected officials were sworn in for the first time.

Mayor Scott Galvin gave his inaugural address and was also sworn in for his third term.

Members of the Woburn Memorial High School chorus and band also performed as did the St. Barbara's Junior Choir. Larry Rideout served as the master of ceremonies for the evening's proceedings.

IQ when you have multiple bullets in your body,spend 21/2 years rehabbing and deal with the long term effects of the damage feel free to speak. What is damaging is people like you presenting false facts and and bringing a stupid campaign into it. My comment about taking care of their own was not about your almighty tax dollar it was about kindness, compassion and support. Yes he has been abandoned, Yes he has been dragged through the mud , Yes my family including my children have been dragged into this and used. Dont hold you breath waiting for him to beg because that will never happen, remember you have not walked in his shoes and you have no idea what has been going on

This emotional issue has been playing out very publicly over the past year and involves a lot of moving pieces, why shouldn't people in the community talk about it? The problem is, even in this thread you find people matter of factly stating "take what's offered and move on"...Well, why should they just move on? This is an issue that is important for this Officer and his family and an issue that is going to remain important for future officers in the same spot. If the Mayor and City Council are so divided over this matter, maybe it's time to step back and say "Why is that? Maybe it's time we have a real dialogue about how we've been doing things."

Lisa. I hope you know my post in no way meant you. You and a few others are the only ones that make any sence. So please keep posting we need to hear the truth and maybe santo just hit the nail on the head when he asked what went wrong. And realize that the dialogue went wrong back in nov, when we had a chance and didn't take it. My heart goes out to Carole and bob she should not have to put up with this with all they have to condend. With. But please Lisa know where I was coming from. Keep on posting Thanks
