Ward 2 Councilwoman Lynn McGraw ran unopposed for her seat.
After making the new council members’ terms official, Tabor wished them good luck.
“Congratulations to all of you. You’ve taken on a very serious and tough job,” Tabor said. “I live in the county, but I’m sure the citizens of Clinton are very proud to have people that are willing to take on this tough job. It’s a lot of important things that happen here at City Hall that a lot of people don’t even realize go on.”
All council members have noted an interest in financial controls as they serve the citizens of Clinton.
As the bridge between new council members and those still in office, Ward 4 Councilman Paul Gassman and At-Large Councilman John Rowland, Allesee said she hopes to continue the strong communication that was prevalent among the previous council members.
“I felt this past couple of years we were building a good relationship between the council members and I think that’s very important moving forward,” Allesee said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to work with all of the new people through my previous jobs. I know all of their personalities and I have a good relationship with all of them.”
The council will meet for the first time Tuesday for a strategic planning session.
The swearing-in ceremony officially marked the departure of outgoing council members Klaes, Hermann, Graf and Mulholland, who were honored at a ceremony on Dec. 12.
