A special city council meeting was held tonight to officially swear in TimBen Boydston to the city council.
Boydston was flanked by his wife and daughter as he took the oath, and then took his seat alongside Bob Kellar.
He thanked God, and his family, as well as the council who appointed him to serve as a placeholder.
He also reminisced about his childhood, being one of eight children, with a father who picked beans in Oxnard for $2 a day.
