There was no City Council election this year after it was against the incumbents.
As a result, the mayor and two council members who were running for re-election automatically won their seats back. A in August to appoint the council members to their posts.
An official swearing-in ceremony took place Tuesday night.
Mayor Jim Ruane, who will serve his second term as mayor, Vice Mayor Michael Salazar, who will serve his first full four-year term as a council member, and Councilwoman Irene O'Connell, who has been on the council for 16 years, all thanked the city and their families for supporting them.
They said the following after being sworn in:
"The highlight for me after two years as mayor is the reinforcement of something that I probably knew all along: the incredible heart and resilience of this community under the most difficult of circumstances. I said two years ago that I'd leave the City Council and staff the strongest on the Peninsula and beyond. You've proven that. It has been a pleasure and honor to serve you as mayor. And I want to thank you for your confidence you've placed in me. I look forward to serving you again." —Ruane
"Mostly I'm thankful for the residents of San Bruno. We as a community have been through a horrific event and are facing continuous challenges. The explosion in the Crestmoor/Glenview neighborhood last year changed us as a city forever. You have shown your true colors. You have been generous and passionate and patient, particularly patient. You understood when staff had to defer your project or delay responding to your concerns in order to work on the explosion site. You have waited patiently, and some of you are still waiting, for an answer to a question or a matter to be finished. For that and all the other ways you've been a neighbor, a resident and a friend of San Bruno, I say thank you." —O'Connell
"Going into another four years, I think it's going to be a wonderful opportunity. I really enjoy working with this team and I'm proud to be a part of this team. I just want to affirm to all the residents of San Bruno that we are here to serve the people. And I just want to let everybody know that I'm here to listen and I hope everyone takes advantage of my invitation to let me know what you think." —Salazar
