Council members Teresa Real Sebastian and Mitchell Ing will be re-installed at council members for a new 4-year term. New councilman Stephen Lam will be sworn in to his first term. Councilman Anthony Wong, who served eight years, will step down from the dais.
Swearing in the council members will be City Clerk Vincent Chang.
