Newly elected Pleasanton City Councilwoman Kathy Narum was sworn into office Tuesday with her family at her side and to loud applause from a council chamber packed with her supporters.

Narum was sworn into office by Federal Judge Lawrence O'Neill of the U.S. District Court in Fresno, She took the council seat vacated by former Councilman Jerry Thorne when he was elected mayor last November and after the four-member council adopted a resolution declaring the results of the special all-mail-in ballot on May 7.

In that election, with 11,812 ballots cast, or 28.1% of the 41,984 registered voters in Pleasanton, Narum received 4,643 votes. She was followed by candidate David Miller, who received 3,159 votes; Olivia Sanwong, 2,014 votes; and Mark Hamilton, 1,873 votes.

After handshakes welcoming her to the council by Mayor Thorne and fellow council members Karla Brown, Cheryl Cook-Kallio and Jerry Pentin, Narum took her seat, bringing the council back up to full strength for the first time since the Nov. 6 election.
