Ogorchock, Tiscareno to take oaths of office for Antioch City Council, Tuesday night

By Allen Payton

The winners in the November Antioch City Council, Lori Ogorchock and Tony Tiscareno, will take their oaths of officer during ceremonies at City Hall, Tuesday night, December 9.

The evening begins at 6:00 p.m., an hour earlier than normal council meetings, with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a special invocation by Father Roberto Corral, a priest at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Antioch, who was chosen by Ogorchock.

Then, the council will vote to certify the official election results, which show Ogorchock with the most votes, followed by Tiscareno.

That will be followed by the oaths of office and then comments by each of the newly elected council members, the mayor and other council members, as well as members of the public who wish to speak.

Then the council will be reorganized, with Ogorchock being voted in as Mayor Pro Tem for the next two years, according to the city ordinance, since she was the candidate with the most votes in the council election. A brief game of musical chairs will occur, as the mayor pro tem sits to the right of the mayor, and the others are rearranged at the will of the mayor.

Following the ceremonies a brief reception will be held in the council chambers.

Although rumors had been circulating that the proponents of Mayor Wade Harper’s recall would, once again serve him with papers at the council reorganization meeting, recall leader Rich Buongiorno stated on Monday, that they will wait until the first council meeting in January.

The complete meeting agenda can be viewed here.

The council meetings are held at 200 H Street in downtown Antioch or can be viewed via live stream on the city’s website at http://www.ci.antioch.ca.us/CityGov/citycouncilmeetings.htm.
