New Maplewood mayor, council members sworn in


Nora Slawik is sworn in as mayor of Maplewood by city clerk Karen Guilfoile Jan. 6 at the Maplewood Community Center.

Taking the oath of office for the Maplewood City Council are Kathleen Juenemann, above, and Marylee Abrams, below.

When Will Rossbach became Maplewood’s mayor four years ago, he asked for a new gavel - “a fresh start” -- to use during city council meetings, marking the opening and closing of each one.
In his first minutes as the former mayor on Jan. 6, Rossbach handed the same gavel as well as his key to the city to Mayor Nora Slawik, who took the oath of office moments earlier during the swearing-in ceremony at the Maplewood Community Center.  But the wooden hammer was a little different -- Rossbach had three pink stripes painted on it, signifying the new, but not the first, female majority on the Maplewood City Council.
