I was sworn into office prior to last month's meeting on May 27th.  Now... every politico regardless of office hopes to have a dignified swearing in ceremony.  After all, I was swearing to defend the Colorado and US Constitutions!  Dignified... nope not for me! 

On May 24th I was admitted to the hospital with facial cellulitis as a result of a staph infection that I picked up somewhere.  So... one of our directors came to my hospital room to swear me in lying in those beautiful hospital gowns and with a blown up face that could stop an 8-day clock! Thanks be to God, there are NO pictures. However, I did "attend" my first meeting via telephone conference so all was not lost.

Here's my first "official" photog... a ground breaking ceremony for a new waste treatment facility.  Ah... I've hit the big time!
